Lagos - The Federal High Court in Benin City, Edo State has again failed to deliver judgement on the case of money laundering involving Micheal Igbinedion, Patrick Eboigbodin and their four companies.

It is the third time the court has failed to deliver ruling.

Justice J Liman apologised for the several adjournments, saying ruling on the matter will now be made on April 17.

"I promise that this will be the last adjournment which will be for a very close date after counsels re-adopt their written addresses, he said.

The first adjournment was due to the protracted judiciary strike that ended in February, while the second was as a result of his ill- health.

Eboigbodin and Igbinedion,  Igbinedion, younger brother to Lucky Igbinedion, former Edo State  governor, along with their companies: Gava Corporation Limited, Romrig Nigeria Limited; PML Securities Company Limited and PML Nigeria Limited, were arraigned on an 81-count charge bordering on alleged money laundering, misappropriation of funds, conspiracy and abuse of office. ­
