Ekundayo who was a guest on TVC Breakfast Show made mention of the five-year-old trial of former Ogun State governor, Gbenga Daniel, that was stalled at the state high court in Abeokuta because the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, could not produce three witnesses scheduled to give evidence at the court.
