The trial of former officials of banks indicted in the N8 Billion CBN currency scam continued today with the prosecuting counsel Adebisi Adeniyi asking for time to enable the prosecution and the 4th accused, Oni Adewale Dolapo conclude plea bargain negotiation.
He told the court that he received vital information late from the bank which stalled the process. He therefore asked for a short adjournment to perfect the plea bargain arrangement.
Otunba Bolalanle, Olalekan Ojo, Y.A.H Ruba, Adewole Oladele and A.T Onikosi counsel to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th defendants respectively, did not object to the request for adjournment.
Justice Joyce Abdulmalik, having listened to all the counsel, adjourned the matter to October 6, 2016 for continuation of trial.
