Hon. Justice Samuel Ademusu has last Friday May 21st 2010 ruled that whilst he recognised Lawyer Yada Williams Esq. as one of the Defence Counsels on record for Haja Afsatu Kabba in the matter of The State vs. Afsatu Kabba, he could not recognise the papers filed by the Law Firm of Yada Williams and Associates on behalf of Haja Afsatu Kabba, because, according to the learned Judge, "though Mr. Yada Williams is on record as one of the Counsels for the Defence in this matter but the Firm of Yada Williams & Associates are strangers in these proceedings and I so hold".

Proceeding with his ruling in which he had earlier given other reasons, the learned Judge in his wisdom went on to say, "For all the foregoing reasons, I uphold the objection raise by Mr. Mantsebo. I rule that the present application is not properly before this court. The result is that it is struck out".
