The Supreme Court has again declined the request by the family of the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, to unfreeze their foreign accounts.
The appeal filed by Ali Abacha, brother of the late head of state, was dismissed by a five-man panel of justices led by Sylvester Ngwuta.
The panel on Friday held that the suit lacks merit.
Reading the lead judgment, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun held that the appeal was similar to that which was filed by Abba Mohammed Sani, Abacha’s son, which was dismissed by the court on February 7, 2020.
Justice Kekere-Ekun stated that the bench has no reason to depart from its ruling in the case brought by Mister Abba Mohammed Sani on behalf of the Abacha family.
