“The matter is for the continuation of trial but unfortunately, our PW 12 explained his transportation challenge to me that is why he is not yet in court. I humbly pray for a stand down until noon,” he said.

Counsel to Sani, Mr Abdul Ibrahim, SAN, also agreed to stand down.

The judge, however, declined a stand down and rather told the prosecutor to take a fresh date, warning that it would be the last adjournment for the prosecution.

“I am not ready for a stand down, so I will give you a fresh date which will be the last adjournment for the prosecution,” the judge said. jamb results

The judge adjourned the matter until June 22 and June 23 for the prosecution to call its 12th witness.

The former senator was earlier arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged bribery, name-dropping, and influence peddling.

The anti-graft agency alleged that Sani fraudulently obtained $25,000 from the Chairman of ASD Group of Companies, Alhaji Sani Dauda.
