RELIABLE SOURCE: Fani-Kayode’s absence stalls his trial.

The trial of former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, before Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court, Abuja, could not hold on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, and for the third consecutive time due to his absence in court.

Fani-Kayode is facing a five-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N26million, preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. At today’s trial, prosecution counsel, M. S. Abubakar, expressed displeasure at the defendant’s recurring absence in court, noting that the unnecessary delays which such has caused in the trial defeat the spirit of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of 2016 (ACJ) which is for speedy administration of justice in the country. He therefore applied for a bench warrant against Fani-Kayode.
