Yahaya Bello: Court Picks New Date As Ex-Governor Fails To Appear

The Federal High Court in Abuja has announced Thursday, June 27, as the new date for the arraignment of former Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello.

The court is expected to hear the suit against the embattled former governor in the alleged money laundering case instituted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

EFCC on Thursday abandoned its earlier request for a change in the date for arraignment of former Kogi Bello, from June 13 without informing the defendant's lawyers.

At the resumed hearing on Thursday, counsel to Bello, Adeola Adedipe, SAN, told the court that the EFCC lawyers approached Aliyu AbdulWahab, SAN, who is the counsel for the defendant, that the June 13 date would not be convenient for them to proceed and that Wahab had to agree by way of convenience for another date to be set.

He said he was surprised when he heard that EFCC lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo was in court.
