Ayodele Fayose , former Governor of Ekiti State trial at the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Tuesday has stalled after a witness failed to show up.
The former Governor is being prosecuted over allegations of fraud to the tune of N2.2billion.
Counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Rotimi Jacobs (SAN) told the court that he was “having difficulties bringing his witnesses to court because of happenings in the EFCC.”
In lieu of this, the agency’s counsel, therefore, asked the court to grant an adjournment.
On Monday, the EFCC Counsel had called his 7th witness, Adedamola Otuyalo, to testify. Following the conclusion of Otuyalo’s testimony early Tuesday morning, the trial came to an abrupt end as there were no further witnesses in court, prompting the prosecution counsel to make the request for the adjournment.
Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke ruled that the trial would continue on October 19 and 20.
