The legal battle between Chocolate city limited v. Ashimi Olawale a.k.a Brymo was brought forward for hearing before Justice BUBBA of the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos today, 11th November 2013.
This is coming after months of settlement talks between Audu Maikori-led Chocolate City and Brymo over an alleged breach of contract by Brymo.
The plaintiff, Chocolate City Limited, who was represented by Ms. C.o Madubuko from L&A legal consultants, failed to serve the defendant, Brymo, who was not represented at the court, the motion on notice and other originating process stating the claims of chocolate city and the reliefs sought against the defendants.
The Chocolate City lawyer it would seem appeared before the court without the case file, and if she was desirous of diligently pursing the matter, she would have brought a motion for substituted service, thus, the case was adjourned till 5th of December 2013.
An Industry insider present at the court proceeding and doesn’t want his name in print feels the failure of Chocolate city’s lawyer to come to court with the court file and also serve the defendant, Brymo, the necessary court notice is an attempt to keep the case in limbo and to stunt the upward swing of Brymo.
