The Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday gave more time to a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (retd.), to discuss his proposed plea bargain with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The anti-graft agency charged the ex-NAF chief and 10 others with an alleged fraud of N22.8bn.
On February 12, 2018, Amosu had, through his lawyer, Chief Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN), told the trial judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, that he was considering entering into a plea bargain.
About 16 months earlier, he had first broached his intention to enter into a plea bargain, but he later abandoned it.
It was learnt that the ex-NAF chief was scared off the initiation negotiation by the terms imposed by the anti-graft agency.
