Apo Six. The long wait for justice continues as court adjourns to November 15

The long road to justice for families of the infamous Apo Six victims has suffered yet another stretch. Due to the inability of prosecution counsel, Chief Chris Uche, to file a response to the final written addresses of defendants in the case, the scheduled adoption of written addresses could not go ahead as planned today.

Uche apologised to the court for what was an apparent communication mix up between him and the prosecution counsel that last appeared on the case and begged the court to give him another 21 days within which to reply to the defendants’ applications.

In his ruling, Justice Bello gave the prosecution 15 days to file a composite reply to the applications of the defendants in the matter and gave the defendants eight days to reply on point of law and adjourned the matter till November 15, for adoption of final written addresses.
