CNN and Partners Law Firm confirmed this news to the BBC News Pidgin desk. Barristers Fru John Nsoh and Ndong Christopher, defence counsel for Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe are presently in Nigeria for hearing. The lawyers want the Federal Court to order the Nigerian Government to request Cameroun to return to Nigeria Southern Cameroons leaders in their keeping. The lawyers are praying the Abuja court, insisting that their clients are not Cameroonians and so the matter must be judged in Nigerian civil courts
