Power Blackout Halts Hearing Os Sanusi’s Suit Against FRCN.

A Lagos Federal High Court on Friday postponed a hearing of the suit filed by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi when the temperature of the room became unbearable due to electricity blackout.

The suspended Central Bank governor filed a suit against the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN), asking the court to restrain the FRCN from investigating him.

Due to poor supply of electricity from the Eko Electricity Distribution Company, the court had to rely on generator-powered electricity.

Electricity, however, failed to come on throwing the sitting into darkness and heat as air conditioning stopped working.

Counsels were allowed to remove their wigs while some lawyers turned their papers to hand fans.

When the heat became unbearable, Justice James Tsoho ruled to postpone the hearing till next Thursday.

This is coming a day after the Lagos State government ended the 2014 Economic Summit focusing on power sufficiency.

To recall, the FRCN had produced a report in which it accused Sanusi of financial recklessness and gross misconduct of the Central Bank.In its report.

The report then served a ground for President Goodluck Jonathan to remove Sanusi on February 20.

Last week, the judge had issued an order restraining the FRCN from continuing its investigation against Sanusi until the suit had been heard.
