 A Lokoja High Court sitting in Lokoja, Kogi State, has, again, adjourned the case of former governor of the state, Prince Abubakar Audu, till December 22.

The former governor, who was the governorship candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the last election in the state, is facing 80-count corruption charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The trial judge, Justice Tanko Husseini, while adjourning the case, stated the adjournment was to enable counsel to ascertain the Supreme Court’s position on a pending application for stay of proceedings.

During the sitting, counsel for EFCC, Mr Rotimi Jacobs, presented a Certified True Copy (CTC) of the apex court’s ruling, striking out the application.

However, counsel for Audu, Mr Mike Ozokhome, questioned the authenticity of the order, saying that no brief was added to it and that he was not heard and, therefore, described it as “highly contentious and argumentative.”
