SaharaReporters, an online news media has filed a notice withdrawing its motion on notice challenging a N4 billion court judgement after it realised that its defence in the said case is basically ‘watery and weak’.
The case is between the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki as claimant/respondent and Sahara Reporters and Omoyele Sowere as defendants/applicants.
This is contained in a court statement issued by the High Court of Justice of Kwara State in the Ilorin Judicial Division titled: Notice of Discontinuance.
The message which was dated August 16, 2017 read: Take Notice that the defendants/applicants hereby wholly discontinue the motion on notice dated 11th August, 2017 and filed same day.
A copy of the notice is presented below:
