Date set for ruling on Fani-Kayode case

19 June 2015, 11:13

Abuja - The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos State has deferred judgment in the case of former Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, to July 1.

Justice  Rita Ofili  Ajumogobia  has told the court on Thursday she could not deliver judgment in the case, as earlier scheduled, owing to the absence of the lead prosecution counsel, Festus Keyamo, in court.

 "It is proper for the entire parties to be around for the judgment, I feel this is the right thing to do... it is better to have everyone present for the judgment,” she said.

Fani-Kayode is facing trial on a two-count charge bordering on money laundering.

His trial began in 2008 before Justice Ramat Mohammed of the same court.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is accusing him of laundering about N100 million while he was the Minister of Culture and Tourism and later, the Minister of Aviation.

Last November, the succeeding judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia dismissed 38 of the 40 counts levelled against him.
