Dino Melaye to appeal against recall - Lawyer

The embattled senator, Dino Melaye, has vowed to file an appeal today, Tuesday, against Monday’s judgement by the federal high court ordering continuation of the process for the recall.

The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, presided by Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, ordered the continuation of the recall process after dismissing the senator’s motion against it.
Mr. Melaye’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, in a telephone conversation on Monday, said he had been directed to file an appeal.
“Of course we are challenging the judgment. The appeal against the judgment would be filed tomorrow,” Mr. Ozekhome said.
He added that a fresh motion against the respondents will also be filed after his client had viewed the petition against him.
“We are appealing against parts of the court judgement that did not favour us,” Mr. Ozekhome said.
“You know that they did not initially want to disclose the identities of the petitioners to our client. But today, the court has ordered that they should provide the details of all the signatories.
“After looking at them and being able to show that some of them are fake, the names of dead people, I can assure you that we will start a fresh legal battle against the respondents,” Mr. Ozekhome said.
