Contractual Tenancy premised on Consideration otherthan rent. Suit No: FHC/HC/CV/2457/2016 between - Dr. Ebikabowei Victor Ben and The Government of Bayelsa State & Anor. We are pleased to have represented a High Net individual; Dr. Ebikabowei Victor Ben in a Complex real estate litigation involving a contractual tenancy with the Bayelsa State Government in respect of a prime property situate in a high brow area of Abuja, before the Federal Capital Territory, High Court, Maitama, Abuja Coram Oriji.J. The Court acceded to the claimant's claims in part by agreeing that there was indeed a contractual tenancy in favour of the claimant, and until the Defendants fulfill their underlining obligations as stipulated in the contract, they cannot proceed to recover possession by any means whatsoever. Other notable pronouncements were made by the trial Judge in its judgment including the propriety or otherwise of an additional witness statements on oath which is silent under the rules of court inter alia. Our team was led by our Managing Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution Practice: M.J Numa Esq; leading Isioma G. Kelubia Esq, K.B Ebitibituwa Esq and Olumide Makinde Esq. We are grateful to God for another success recorded and the conclusion of a long drawn litigation that lasted for 6years at the trial Court.
