A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has adjourned the trial of former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose to October 20.

 

Fayose was present in court on Monday but the case failed to go on.

 

NEWS FLAKES NG reports that the court adjourned the case at the instance of the Counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Rotimi Jacobs who told Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke that the prosecution witness who was supposed to testify was not available.

 

The lawyer said that that the witness had informed him that “one of his family members was being quarantined in the Isolation centre.”
