A Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, on Thursday, granted the application of Adebayo Shittu, the Minister of Communications, seeking to serve originating summon on the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, in Abuja.
Justice P.I. Ajoku, the presiding judge, ruled that the originating summons be served on the respondents through the bailiffs of the court, the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports.
“The service of the plaintiff’s processes on the first, third and fourth defendants who are in Abuja shall be effected by the bailiffs of this honourable court,” the judge ruled.
The judge, however, adjourned the case till November 19 for report of service.
The suit has the Director-General, NYSC; the State Coordinator, NYSC; the NYSC and the Attorney-General of the Federation as the first, second, third and fourth defendants respectively.
