This was after a petition by Olalekan Ojo, Fashola’s lawyer, requesting the court to allow the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) provide statements of its prosecution witnesses to the defendant.

Nicholas Oweibo, the presiding judge, after minutes of argument by the defence and prosecution counsel, adjourned the case till October 23, to allow both parties substantiate their arguments.

“In a criminal trial, it must be borne in mind that the trial in the Federal High Court is a summary trial and therefore the proof of evidence is not required. However, the prosecution should furnish the defendants with the investigative officers’ report and the statements of witnesses if any,” the presiding judge said before adjourning the trial.
