An FCT High Court in Jabi has again strike out a bail application filed by Maryam Sanda.
The trial judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu delivered the ruling by 12:20pm on Wednesday when giving ruling on the observation made by the court that a notice of appeal has been made against the court’s earlier ruling denying Maryam bail in December 14.
The judge held that, ” The proper thing to have done is to file notice of discontinuance of the appeal but having not done that the new motion filed on 25/1/2018 was brought for the irritation of the court and the prosecution counsel, and it is thereby struck out.”
The judge earlier held that, “A notice of appeal is the livewire that animates and sustains an appeal. It is the originating process which set the ball rolling for a proper commencement of an appeal,” the judge held.
