Justice Adebukola Banjoko of FCT High Court, Gudu has adjourned till March 2, the N1.162 billion fraud suit filed against former Plateau Governor, Joshua Dariye by EFCC.
Dariye is facing a 21-count charge bothering on breach of trust and diversion of N1.162 billion Plateau’s Ecological Fund.
The adjournment would provide the defendant time to enable him study a response to two motions he earlier filed.
Also the supreme court has fixed May 12th to decide whether Governor Okezie Ikpeazu can continue to remain in office following “falsehood and discrepancies” allegedly discovered in the tax documents submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
A five-man panel of the apex court led by the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen fixed the date for judgement after hearing an appeal against the judgment of the court of appeal in Abuja, which had gone in favour of Ikpeazu last August.
