Written by Taiwo Adekola on April 19, 2023
The Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed May 30 and 31 for continuation of the trial of Ali Bello a nephew to Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi.
Bello and three others were arraigned before the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC for alleged N3 billion.
When the matter in the suit marked ABJ/CR/573/2022 FRN vs. Ali Bello and 3 others was called yesterday, the prosecution, led by Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, SAN, called their first witness Mr Nicholas Oyemomoni from the American International School, Abuja.
Oyemomoni however, could not complete his testimony because the defence team, led by Mr Abubakar Aliyu, SAN, objected to documents, which the EFCC sought to tender in evidence through him.
The prosecuting counsel objected to this on the grounds that the documents could not be provisionally admitted.
