Court adjourns Badeh’s trial till July 4

The trial of a former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh, was stalled on Monday, due to the ill health of the 19th prosecution witness.

Justice Okon Abang adjourned the matter until July 4 for continuation of trial.

Badeh is standing trial for allegedly abusing his office by diverting N3.97bn.

The diverted money was meant for arms purchase in the face of worsening destructions by Boko Haram terrorists.

At the resumed hearing, the Prosecuting Counsel, Mr Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), told the court that he had to compel the witness to attend court but that the witness could not testify, due to ill health.
