A former Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Adeyemi Ikuforiji, and his ex-aide, Oyebode Atoyebi, have approached the Supreme Court to challenge the judgment of the court of appeal that ordered their retrial for an alleged fraud of N600 million.
Justice Ibrahim Buba of a Federal High Court in Lagos had in a ruling set Mr Ikuforiji and Atoyebi free of the 56 charges filed against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
But the ruling was reversed penultimate week by a three-man appellate court panel which ordered a re trial of both men.
