Malabu scandal: Court warns EFCC over repeated failure to present witness
A Federal High Court in Abuja has warned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against several requests for adjournment in the ongoing money laundering charge against former Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke. Adoke is being prosecuted alongside Aliyu Abubakar, the owner of AA Oil, on an amended 14-count charge bordering on money laundering.
Justice Inyang Ekwo warned the anti-graft agency at the resumed trial on Wednesday after the EFCC lawyer, Bala Sanga asked the court for an adjournment following the absence of the fifth prosecution witness in court. Sanga informed the court that the fifth prosecution witness had to be subpoenaed because he had became hesitant and was refusing to attend court to testify in the matter.
