CORRUPTION: EFCC stalls Gbenga Daniel’s trial

Witnesses fail to show up

Witnesses of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have failed to show up at the ongoing alleged corruption trial of former Governor Gbenga Daniel of Ogun state at an Abeokuta high court.

The failure of EFCC to present its three witness against the former governor at Tuesday’s trial, forced the trial judge, Justice Olanrewaju Mabekoje to adjourn further hearing till November 4 and 11.

EFCC counsel, Adebisi Adeniyi had pleaded with the judge over the non-appearance of his three witnesses for Tuesday session, despite having a pre-trial meeting with them last Monday, when the hearing was adjourned for Tuesday.

He then filed a fresh oral application for the adjournment of the trial to enable EFCC to investigate the circumstances surrounding their absence from court.

The former Governor’s counsel, Professor Femi Osipitan did not oppose the application.

Osipitan, however, said it was unfortunate that EFCC had only presented 33 witnesses in the last five years during the trial. ###
