Court rules on Fayose’s N2.2bn fraud case Feb 17

Federal High Court in Lagos has fixed February seventeen to rule on whether or not the Head of Operations, Zenith Bank, Ado-Ekiti branch, Johnson Abidakun, can testify as a prosecution witness in the ongoing two point two billion naira fraud trial of former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, and a firm, Spotless Investment Limited.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had brought Abidakun in to replace a bullion van driver with Zenith Bank, Ado-Ekiti branch, Adewale Aladegbola, who had earlier testified in the case.

The prosecuting counsel for the EFCC, Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, alleged that the testimony given by the bullion van driver was different from the statement he wrote at the EFCC’s office during the investigation of the case.

Jacobs alleged that Fayose had gone behind to compromise the witness by threatening him.
