PDP Spokesman Seeks Bail Variation as Witnesses Testifies on $3m

Responding, counsel to EFCC, Sylvanus Tahir, told the court that he was only served with the application few minutes before the court session started. In his opposition to the application, Tahir told the court that, “the business of the day is to commence trial on this matter, so to hear this application will be a distraction to the court”. He urged the court to fix a later day for the hearing on the application and ordered the trial to commence as the witnesses were already in court to testify. Justice Abang, after listening to the arguments of both counsels, adjourned the hearing on the application to January 27, 2016 and ordered the trial to commence as scheduled. The judge however added that, the prosecution would only be allowed to present only the witnesses whose statement and proof of evidence had earlier been served on the defence
