Judge pickets EFCC for frustrating Dalori’s trial at Fed High Court
NEWS DIGEST–The Presiding Judge of Court 10 at the Federal High Court in Abuja, Justice Taiwo O. Taiwo has expressed displeasure over the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC’s) ‘deliberate’ efforts to frustrate the smooth trial of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Galaxy Transportation and Construction Services Limited, Engr. Babagana Dalori.
Justice Taiwo, at the Court 10 Room on Thursday, ordered EFCC to produce Dalori in person at the next court hearing on September 10. He also questioned the anti-graft agency’s counsel as to why EFCC failed to produce the Galaxy Services CEO at the High Court today.
The Presiding Judge, noted that the anti-graft agency perhaps has the intent to deliberately frustrate their detainee’s speedy trial that is why it ‘hurriedly’ filed four charges against Dalori at the Upper Area Court 2 in Nyanya yesterday, barely 24 hours to hearing in the litigation at the Federal High Court.
PRNigeria gathered though counsel to EFCC, Maryam Aminu was represented at the Court, the lead counsel to Mr. Dalori, Joe Kyari Gadzama (SAN) and four other lawyers of the Galaxy Ltd Boss, attended Thursday’s hearing.
Gadzama, while making a case for his client, also demanded that 100 million be payed as damages to Dalori for the violation of his fundamental human rights by the EFCC.
However, Mr. Gadzama and the four other lawyers representing Dalori refused to comment on the ruling delivered by the Presiding Judge, after the hearing.
