Earlier today, Former governor of Katsina state Ibrahim Shema arrived Katsina  High Court 3 ahead of his arraignment by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

Shema was wearing a flowing ‘Babar Riga’ and a dark shades and been accompanied  by the state PDP chairman Salisu Majigiri, and former party chairman Rabiu Gambo Bakori, North West secretary PDP Bishir Tanimu, former commissioners, Special advisers and party supporters.

But information reaching KATSINA POST has it that the judge presiding over the case has adjourned the matter to 7th February, 2017.

Bellow is how the court proceedings went:

1. Plea of the accused person not taken. (Charge not read to the accused) Because there is a pending Preliminary Objection challenging jurisdiction of the court.

2. Learned Senior Prosecution Counsel applied for the remand of the accused persons in prison custody before the next adjourned date (7th February, 2017). He submitted that in law trial is said to have commenced when a charge is filed.

3. Learned Senior Defence counsel objects the prosecution’s application for remand of the accused persons in prison custody on the ground that the court is duty bound to hear & determine the preliminary objection challenging the jurisdiction of the court first before taking any further step in the case and that trial can not be said to have commenced when there is a pending P O challenging the court’s jurisdiction of the court.

4. The judge retired to his chamber’s to write his ruling & at the end he ruled that its premature at this stage of the case to apply for the remand of the accused in prison custody. He however ordered that for the status-quo to be maintained. And adjourned the matter to 7th February, 2017.
