The Hama Batta approached the Appeal Court when the lower court turned down his application that the complainant, Mr. Medan Teneke, younger brother to Alhamdu, had no legal ground to sue the royal father.

Counsel to the royal father, Akonmode Abayomi, citing Section 2 (a) of the Public Officers Protection Law of Adamawa State, 1997, told the court that the legal rights of the complainant expired after 90 days as he failed to file his case to challenged the selection process of the royal father.

Abayomi told the court that his client was appointed in February 2010 and that the complainants filed his case on December 4, 2015, which, according to him, has violated Section 2(a) of Adamawa State law.

Ruling, a team of three judges, presided over by Justice Tanko Useni, upheld the submission of the defence counsel and struck out the case on the grounds that the applicant lacked legal backing to challenge the selection of the Hama Batta.
