The Justice ordered the debtors/applicants to pay the N30 billion judgment sum into the court’s interest-yielding account to be obtained from the Deputy Chief Registrar of the court within the specified timeline.

The court ruled that the deposited sum, along with accruing interests and after deducting administrative charges, would be paid to the party who succeeds in the appeal as determined by the Deputy Chief Registrar of the court.

In a reaction, the state’s Attorney-General (AG) and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Dederi, expressed dissatisfaction with the ruling.
