Lagos - The matter involving Emmanuel Okoyomon, embattled former Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company (NSPM), has been adjourned to Thursday.
He is facing extradition to the United Kingdom to face charges of corruption and money laundering.
The United Kingdom government is seeking Okomoyon over his alleged role in the bribery allegation involving officials of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), NSPM and Securency International Pty of Australia between 2006 and 2008.

Alex Izinyon, counsel to the accused, is challenging the jurisdiction of the court to entertain and determine the matter, arguing that no extradition treaty exists between Nigeria and the United Kingdom, and that the 2002 London Scheme for extradition within the Commonwealth does not apply in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the accused will remain in custody pending the continuation of the matter later this week.
