The Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Inyang Ekwo has adjourned the trial of former Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke, and an Abuja-based businessman, Aliyu Abubakar.
The court on Thursday fixed September 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 as new dates for hearing the case.
Justice Ekwo adjourned the case after the prosecution opened its case by calling two witnesses
Adoke and Abubakar, on August 4, were re-arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a 14-count amended charge bordering on alleged money laundering and corruption.
At a previous sitting on August 11, the prosecutor, Bala Sanga, had presented a witness but failed to serve the defendants with the proof of evidence and statement before approaching the court.
Adoke has pleaded ‘not guilty ‘to the charges levelled against him.
