Justice Mohammed Idris of the Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday adjourned the ongoing trial of a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (rtd) and two others currently facing trial over alleged N22.8 billion to May 2 to allow them access to records of proceedings.

The two others officers are the Air Force, Air Vice Marshal Jacob Bola Adigun and Air Commodore Gbadebo Owodunni.

Justice Idris granted the defence permission to the court’s records after a request by the defendants’ lawyers to that effect.

The defence counsel led by Chief Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN) had made the request to enable them  prepare effectively for the cross-examination of an investigative officer with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Tosin Owobo.

Amosu, was arraigned on June 29, 2016 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alongside two senior serving Air Force officers, Air Vice Marshal Jacob Bola Adigun and Air Commodore Gbadebo Owodunni Olugbenga and seven companies before Justice Mohammed Idris.
