Alleged N700m Fraud: Court Adjourns Trial Of Ize-Iyamu Till July 14

The Federal High Court in Benin City has adjourned the trial of the All Progressives Congress candidate in the Edo governorship election, Osagie Ize Iyamu, and four others to July 14.

Mr. Osagie Ize-Iyamu is facing eight counts of money laundering to the tune of N700 million reportedly deployed to prosecute the 2015 Edo State governorship election.

Other defendants in the suit filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), are former Deputy Governor of Edo, Lucky Imasuen; immediate past chairman of the PDP in the state, Dan Orbih, and two others.

At the resumption of trial on Tuesday, the first defendant Mr. Ize-Iyamu failed to appear in court due to illness.

His counsel, Charles Edosomwan presented a medical report to the court to validate his claim, while hoping that his client would be in court on the adjourned date.

The trial could not hold last Tuesday due to the absence of the trial judge.
