The Upper Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja has fixed October 8 for adoption of final written addresses in a suit involving a dispute between Atiku Abubakar, a son of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, and his former wife, Maryam Sheriff, over the custody of their children.

Sheriff, the claimant who instituted the suit, seeks an order granting her custody of their three sons, a request opposed by Atiku.

The judge, Bashir Dansule, picked the date for adoption of final address by the parties after Atiku’s lawyer, Abdullahi Hassan, presented his last defence witness on Wednesday

The defence witness, Lawra Kamchi, 42, testified in Hausa language which was translated to English by a court interpreter.

After Kamchi finished testifying, Hassan applied to close the case of the defence.

In response, the claimant’s lawyer, Nasir Saidu, said he would not call a witness.

He urged the court to allow him to argue on points of law on the basis of the evidence and testimonies of the defendant’s witnesses.

But Hassan objected, arguing that, procedurally, he as the defence counsel, ought to be the first to address the court.

He urged the court to adjourn the case to enable parties to file their final written addresses and return to court for adoption.

The judge then adjourned the case till October 8 for adoption of final written addresses by the parties’ lawyers.
