However, according to Phrank Shaibu, Special Assistant on Public Communications to Atiku, the dismissal followed his principal’s withdrawal of the suit.


Arisenews reports Shaibu stated this on Sunday in reaction to enquiries about the dismissed suit by the Circuit Court of Cook County.


Shaibu said, “Waziri Atiku Abubakar only withdrew the case before a Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois County, United States of America because he is pursuing the same matter in a higher court and wanted to avoid abuse of court processes. So, this is just the beginning.”
