The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the trial of Ali Bello, a nephew of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi to 30 and 31 May, for continuity.
Bello and three others were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged N3 billion fraud.
When the matter in the suit marked ABJ/CR/573/2022 (FRN Vs. Ali Bello) and three others was called on Tuesday, the prosecution, led by Rotimi Oyedepo, called their first witness, Nicholas Oyemomoni, from the American International School, Abuja.
Oyemomoni, however, could not complete his testimony because the defence team, led by Abubakar Aliyu, objected to documents that the EFCC sought to tender in evidence through him.
Aliyu prayed the court to allow him to raise the objection in his final written address while admitting the documents provisionally.
The prosecuting counsel objected to this on the ground that the documents could not be provisionally admitted.
After that, the judge, Obiora Egwuatu, adjourned the matter until 30 and 31 May to continue the trial.
The court had admitted Mr Bello and the three others to a bail of N500 million on 20 February.
