Information reaching us at katsinapost.com has it that the appeal case filled by Katsina ex-Governor Ibrahim Shema at the Supreme Court, marked SC/814c/2017, is going to be decided on November 8.

It could be recalled that the Katsina High court had in 23rd of October, adjourned till February 13, 2018 the  case between the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and former governor of Katsina state Ibrahim Shema pending the determination of a motion before the Supreme Court.

EFCC had filed a 22-count charge against Shema alongside three others, namely Sani Makana, Lawal Safana and Ibrahim Dankaba for allegedly diverting about N11 billion belonging to the state.

At the resumed sitting yesterday, Shema’s counsel, Akinlolu Kehinde, SAN, drew the attention of the court to the motion before the Supreme Court and asked the matter to be adjourned indefinitely.

But the prosecution counsel Earnest Obunadike objected the indefinite adjournment on the ground that the apex court could rule anytime.

In his ruling, Justice Maikaita Bako adjourned the matter to February 13 next year but said if the Supreme Court delivered its verdict by next month, the court might fix earlier date for the commencement of the trial.
