N11bn fraud: Absence of defense counsels stall Shema, 3 others trial
N11bn fraud: Absence of lawyers delays Shema, 3 others trial
The absence of team of lawyers of Katsina Ex-Governor, Barrister Ibrahim Shehu Shema and three others standing trial before the Katsina State High court today has forced the case to be adjourned to 15th April, 2019.
Recall that the trial-within-trial involved in the case over alleged fraud of N11bn local governments fund resumed 14th of March.
At the resumed sitting, the prosecuting team of lawyers was present only for the defense counsels to be absent.
Katsina Post, however, gathered that defense counsels had earlier sent a letter to the court Secretariat notifying them that they will not be present because of another case they will attend at Federal Court of Appeal, Kaduna.
