The court struck out the suit on the ground that it lacks jurisdiction to entertain the suit since section 308 of the 1999 constitution as amended confers immunity on President Buhari.

Justice Senchi also awarded the cost of N2million against the plaintiff for filing processes aimed at irritating and annoying the court including embarrassing public officers.

The plaintiff is ordered to pay the cost within 14 days.
