I visited Onyendu today (Monday) at the Headquarters of the State Security Service (DSS), Abuja, to specifically brief him on the outcome of the Court of Appeal Ruling, of Friday last week, staying the execution of Onyendu’s Appeal Court Judgement.
Apart from critical legal strategies which will remain private, Onyendu did not hesitate in giving our legal team a nod to immediately proceed with an appeal at the Supreme Court against the Ruling of the Court of Appeal staying the execution of its Judgement, which expectedly, is to be heard under the Supreme Court Fast Track Rules.
Procedures towards an expeditious hearing of the appeal was agreed upon and we are very hopeful that it shall still end in praises, God being our Helper.
As we had earlier stated, be assured that the Court of Appeal Judgement which vindicated Onyendu, and consequently discharged him of every bogus allegation, still subsists, it has not been set aside.
Onyendu’s legal team eminently led by Chief Mike Ozekome, SAN, will vigorously pursue an appeal at the Supreme Court against the Ruling of the Court of Appeal staying the execution of Onyendu’s landmark victory at the Court of Appeal.
Onyendu used the opportunity presented by the visit to generally thank all Umuchineke for their unshaken solidarity and support, even as he continued to encourage you all to remain peaceful and law abiding, as you have always demonstrated.
Thank you all ezigbo Umuchineke and remain hugely blessed.
