A five-man panel of the Court of Appeal, Owerri Division, hearing appeals on the tax forgery suit filed against Abia Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has adjourned indefinitely.

This appeal was to determine a pending motion filed by Sir Friday Nwosu, which urged the Supreme Court to take over the matter or order the panel to expeditiously determine it.

Ruling on the suit, Presiding Judge of the Court of Appeal, Owerri, Justice R.C. Agbo told parties in the suit that he had to adjourn the matter indefinitely until the motion filed by Nwosu was determined at the Supreme Court.

The judge also adjourned two other appeals filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Ikpeazu, on the suit challenging some aspects of the July 8, 2016 verdict of the Federal High Court, Owerri.

It added that the appeals could not be heard since they emanated from the same judgment.
