At the resumed hearing of the matter, Asemota told the court that the application for substituted service became necessary when all efforts to serve the 2nd to 7th defendants personally were futile.

Justice Olajuwon granted the plaintiff’s request for an order of substituted service of court processes on the 2nd to 7th defendants and adjourned the matter until March 4 for hearing.
