Court adjourns Oronsaye’s trial

21 April 2016, 17:24

Abuja - Justice Gabriel Kolawale of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday adjourned the case of former Head of Service, Stephen Oronsaye, to May 18 for continuation of hearing.

Oronsaye and his counsel, Kanu Agabi, were already in court when the registrar announced that the court would not sit and that all the cases had been adjourned.

The registrar said that the adjournment was because judges of the Federal High Court and Court of Appeal were attending a seminar on the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

He added that the information got to the court late and that was why counsel and parties could not be reached until Thursday morning.

While cases for ruling and judgement were fixed for Friday, other counsel were asked to pick suitable dates.

Oronsaye is standing trial for allegedly defrauding the Federal Government, using his position as the then Chairman, Presidential Committee on Financial Action Task Force.
