State vs Nsibiet John: Case resumes in court *Trial within trial to be heard, Thursday June 14

The Magistrate Court of Akwa Ibom State will on Thursday, June 14, resume hearing on the case between the Deputy Governor, Mr. Moses Ekpo and Editor of THE INK Newspaper, Comrade Nsibiet John.

The case which is being presided over by Chief Magistrate Martins Johnny was last adjourned a month ago due to the health challenge which was faced by the Editor. 

However, the Editor is hale and hearty, and hearing on the case will resume on Thursday.

Mr. Nsibiet John is currently standing trial on some Count Charges of Sedition and Defamation following a Publication of THE INK Newspaper with the headline: “Moses Ekpo allegedly pockets N250m Monthly as Security Vote.”
The case was first heard on January, 2017
