On the first day of hearing at the obuasi High Court, the lawyer for the defendant(Lawyer kwame owusu sekyere) prayed the court to allow him use legal objection to squash the suit. However, the plaintiff's lawyer said that if he, Kwame Owusu had wanted to do so then he should not have filed an affidavit in opposition to the claims against his client Mr. Akwasi Addai Odike and the judge also said same and further said that, that is not the procedure.


He also raised the issue of the place of abode of the defendant in respect of the forum court. The council for the plaintiff also said the defendant has businesses in all parts of Ghana which Obuasi could be one and even the affidavit in opposition bears the address of the defendant as someone who lives in Accra. 


Finally, the council for the defendant turned the agreement on the bailiff of the court and said he overheard the bailiff coach the plaintiff that he should tell the court that his lawyer has reached the barrier just close to the court premises. His lordship asked for the day of adjournment to help the council for the plaintiff respons to the affidavit in opposition accordingly. The council said that would be on the 30th of September 2020. The lawyer for the defendant objected to that insisting one day will be enough but his lordship over ruled the objection. 


Next meeting will entertain the legal objection of the defendant and the response of the plaintiff to the affidavit in opposition and rebat the legal objection accordingly.
