The senate president’s trial has been adjourn till march 8, 2018 to parties adopt their final brief.
It was adjourned by the Code of Conduct Tribunal Chairman, Mr Danladi Umar, following claims by the defence lead Counsel, Mr Kanu Agabi, that he was served with the brief of the prosecution on Monday, February 26, 2018.
Mr Agabi who is in for the senate president, pleaded with the tribunal to adjourn the matter to enable him to study and respond to the brief of argument served on him late by the prosecution.
The prosecutor Mr Rotimi Jacobs admitted that his brief was served late, but blamed the defence for the lateness on the grounds that their own brief of argument was served on him after seven days, ordered by the tribunal.
Mr Jacob also told the tribunal that because the defence filed their brief of argument out of time, the settlement of his own brief was affected.
Having listened to both sides the tribunal chairman subsequently adjourned the matter to March 8th for the adoption of final written address.
