Bribery case: Court suspends ex-NAF chief’s testimony over security risk

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Maitama, Abuja, on Thursday, adjourned till May 19 to decide on the procedure it would adopt for taking the evidence of a former Chief of Administration of the Nigerian Air Force Headquarters, Air Vice Marshall Mohammed Mamu (retd.), who is being prosecuted for alleged bribery charges.

Justice Salisu Garba  adjourned the case after the defence lawyer, Mr. Joseph Daudu (SAN), indicated that a special procedure might be necessary for his client to continue his testimony because of its potential risk to national security.

The judge decided to entertain arguments on Daudu’s request after the counsel prosecuting for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Sylvester Tahir, opposed any plan to adopt a special procedure for taking the defendant’s evidence and insisted that Mamu must continue his testimony in the open court.
