N6.8bn fraud: Counsel’s absence stalls ex-NAMA boss’ trial

A Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday fixed Dec. 2 for continued trial of a former Managing Director of the Nigeria Airspace Management Agency, Ibrahim Abdulsalam.

Abdulsalam was charged alongside six others over alleged stealing and conversion of NAMA’s N6.8bn.

The other accused are: Adegorite Olumuyiwa, Agbolade Segun, Clara Aliche, Joy Adegorite and two companies – Randville Investment Ltd. and Multeng Travels and Tours Ltd.
The accused are being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Justice Babs Kuewumi adjourned the case following the absence of prosecution counsel, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, who informed the court of his non-availability, in a letter.

Oyedepo informed the court that he was before an appellate court for another case.

The EFCC had on April 7 arraigned Abdulsalam, three directors of the agency and the wife of one of the directors.

They, however, pleaded not guilty.

The charge was later amended to include the other accused.
