The honourable judge granted his wish.

Counsel for the defendant: My lord at this point I would like to ask for an adjournment to rearrange our exhibits.

Counsel to the Clamant: My lord the defendant's team have been deliberately delaying this matter since 2013 and on every sitting my client flies in form Lagos to attend this matter before you, firstly I ask for a double sitting date and then we ask for the sum of Forty thousand Naira.

The honourable judge grants the sum of Ten thousand Naira and grants the 29th of July and the 2nd of August 2021 for next hearing.
