A magistrate sitting at Gabasawa has dismissed a case instituted against Kaduna State governor Nasir Elrufai's political Adviser, Uba Sani by members of Gidan Daji community for allegedly inflicting injury, wrecking havoc and trying to forcefully demolish the houses under claims that he had acquired the land.

Magistrate Mohammed Auwal Yusuf of Magistrate Court II, Gabasawa, Kaduna, in his ruling struck out the case for lack of jurisdiction and proper representation.

The court said the complainant and the respondents are not known to law and that Gidan Daji community has no low-cost standing to file such a case.

Council to Uba Sani,  Barrister Abdulrauf Atiku, said the court has struck out the matter in the basis that it has no jurisdiction to entertain the matter since they have not filed the matter with proper parties and a court cannot adjudicate on a matter without proper parties.

He said his client intends to seek redress based on the ruling of the court. Council to the plaintiffs, Barrister Henry Uzoma Obimba said his client will do the needful. "All our effort is to ensure that, the downtrodden are not being rubbished, everybody in Nigeria is equal and the law protects whoever it is."
