Federal High Court sitting in Yola, Adamawa State has ordered substituted service on the All Progressive Congress Governorship Candidate, Aishatu Binani, as result of her absence in court .

The presiding Judge, Hon. Justice A. M. Anka, ordered that Binani,  be served by substituted means by pasting the Court’s process on her residential address and the notice board of the Court.

The order followed an ex-parte application filed on Monday, the 20th June, 2022 by I. M. Dikko, Counsel to the Plaintiff, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, who is challenging the victory of Binani, at the just concluded primary election of the party.

Nuhu Ribadu, an Aspirant during the exercise dragged the All Progressive Congress, Binani and Independent National Electoral Commission, alleging over voting and votes buying during the exercise.

NASFM Fm learnt that the Bailiffs of the Court tried to serve the Respondent with the process but could not have access to her; hence, the ex-parte application.
