A former governor of Taraba State, Jolly Nyame, who is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, before Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT High Court, Gudu on a 41-count charge of criminal misappropriation of N1.64bn state funds will know his fate on February 14, 2017.
The court will on that day decide whether he has a case to answer or not.
The prosecution had on November 22, 2016 closed its case against Nyame after presenting 14 witnesses.
The trial, however, witnessed a twist on the same day, as the defence told the court that it intended to file a “no case” submission, as it believed that there was no prima facie case established against Nyame.
At the resumed sitting yesterday, both the prosecution and the defence adopted their written addresses, and gave oral arguments.
