Dariye begs court to adjourn N1.1bn scam trial

Former Plateau Governor, Joshua Dariye, on Monday begged an FCT High Court in Gudu to adjourn his trial over alleged N1.1bn scam on medical grounds.

Dariye, who is facing 21 counts of money laundering and diversion of state ecological fund to the tune of N1.162bn, prayed the court for adjournment to enable him travel abroad for eye treatment.

On March 20, 2017, Dariye’s former counsel, Mr Garba Pwul (SAN) withdrew officially from further representation. Pwul was the third lawyer to pull out from the Dariye’s matter. The Dariye’s appeal was contained in a letter he brought to court dated June 14, 2017, and signed by him.
