In his ruling, Justice Abang, who on the previous day, held that, by being absent in court, Adedipe had abandoned proceedings, said that the notice the lawyer claimed to have filed was not in the court’s file.

Meanwhile, Maina has repeatedly failed to appear in court for the continuation of his trial which led to the revocation of his bail by Justice Abang.

Abang also ordered a bench warrant for Maina’s arrest anywhere he is sighted.
