Ayuk tabe case: John Fru Ndi announced at military court today

Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and company are expected at the Yaoundé military court this Thursday, March 07, 2019. To this end, the chairman NI John FRU NDI was seen there. The separatist leader and his co-accused should be before the Yaounde Military Tribunal today.

This new hearing comes a few days after a decision by the Nigerian judiciary requesting the transfer of litigants in Abuja. Refusing the arguments of the lawyers, the Yaoundé Military Court has jurisdiction to try the defendants.

The lawyers had slammed the door of the Tribunal during the last hearing contesting the option taken by the Tribunal to continue the trial despite the referral to the Court of Appeal of the Center on the decision of the Military Court.

The hearing on Thursday could also be short, the judge of the case was assigned yesterday by presidential decree to the military court of Buea in the Southwest.
