Earlier, Counsel to APC, Mathew Burkaa (SAN), who opened their defence, applied to close their case without calling any witness.

On his part, Samuel Jubril-Okutepa (SAN), counsel to the petitioner, pointed out that the defendant has nothing to prove their case, which was why they  could not provide any witness.

He added that with the action of the defendant, the petition was left undefended.
