The chief magistrate was said to be on an official assignment.

The information was communicated to counsel in the suit by the court registrar.

However, a source told NAN at 11.45 a.m. that the court might still sit on Tuesday.

As at the time of this report, there was no indication that the court would sit.

Olatubosun had, on Thursday, adjourned the case until Tuesday after she extended Kuti’s remand by four days following an application by the police to enable the completion of an investigation into the alleged assault.
