Federal High Court sitting in Jos has again adjourned the alleged N450 million money laundering case against former Minister of Water Resources Mrs. Sarah Reng Ochekpe and two others till 8th and 9th of March, 2018.
The former minister, former acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State, Raymond Dabo and the state campaign coordinator of Goodluck Jonathan, Leo-Sunday Jitong were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a three-count charge of money laundering and conspiracy amounting to N450 million.
At Wednesday’s sitting, the EFCC’s prosecuting counsel; Ahmad Yakub Muntaka was about to present three witnesses out of 11, but the counsel to the defendants, Sunday Oyawole objected the presentation of the witnesses after he argued that all the EFCC’s witnesses’ statements should be detailed, not in summary as presented by the EFCC.
However, the judge presiding over the matter, Musa Kurya adjourned the case to 8th and 9th March, 2018 for ruling on the application and continuation of hearing
