The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has been assigned to may 17 by the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday, to give a report on how it has complied with the court order in the trial of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
According to reports Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu assigned this date prior to the absence of the EFCC’s lawyer, Farouk Abdullah, in court.
The matter, which was earlier fixed for report or arraignment of the Diezani could not proceed as neither Abdullah nor Diezani was available in court. When the matter was called, no lawyer appeared for the prosecution.
Justice Ojukwu, who fixed May 17 for report on EFCC’s compliance with court order, directed the court registrar to issue the prosecution (EFCC) counsel with the next hearing notice.
