Femi Mustapha
The Maternal Uncle to Children of the late Former Chief of Army Staff (COAS), LT. Gen. Luka. N Yusuf, Mr. Emmanuel Yusuf has opted for an out of  Court settlement with his Nieces and nephews, who had dragged him before magistrate Court siting in Kaduna, seeking recovery of their father’s property presently occupied by him.
The  Counsel to the claimant,
Barrister Danjuma Kwajaffa of Messer  Hali Chambers disclosed this while speaking to the Media outside the Court premises.
According to him, the  Counsel to the Defendant, B. P. Achi, Esq. approached  them  to amicably settle the matter out of Court.
“In view of this the case was adjourned to 17th  March, 2022 for report of the settlement.” he said
In Suit No. KDC/734cc/21 filed by Bilhatu Beauty Yusuf on behalf of other siblings prayed the court to help recover their father’s property located at No. 15, Bourmediene Road, Narayi High Cost, Kaduna, which is in possession of their uncle.
The suit, supported by a claim filed by Barrister D.B. Kwajaffa of Mr Hali Chambers, stated that the claimant is entitled to the possession of premises situate at No. 15, Bourmediene Road, Narayi High Cost, Kaduna, which the defendant occupies as a licensee and whose licence was revoked on October 25, 2021.
“The claimant did serve on the Defendant a notice in writing of her intention to apply to recover possession of the said premises, by personal service and that, notwithstanding the said notice, the Defendant has refused, failed or neglected to deliver possession of the said premises and still detains the same”.
However, absence of counsel to Mr. Emmanuel Yusuf,  on 1st of February, 2023  stalled the legal proceedings  and was adjourned to 22nd February, 2023.
