CORRUPTION: Abubakar Audu’s Corruption Trial Stalled, Judge Absent


The trial of the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate in the forthcoming Kogi State governorship election, Mr Abubakar Audu, for an alleged fraud of N10.9bn was stalled on Wednesday at the Abuja High Court due to the absence of the trial judge, Hon Justice A. O. Adeniyi.

Upon inquiry from the registry, our correspondent was told that the trial judge was on assignment outside Abuja on election petition matters.

Audu, who was originally arraigned since March 2013, is being charged along with one Alfa Ibn Mustapha on a 32-count charge which includes stealing, criminal breach of trust and misappropriation punishable under Section 315 of the Pena l Code, Cap 532 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.
