The case between Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and ex-governor, Ibrahim Shema, has been adjourned by the Katina State High court, till June 6.
Presiding judge, Justice Ibrahim Bako, who adjourned the case, said the adjournment was due to the defendants’ appeal challenging the court’s jurisdiction to try the case.
The ex-governor and three others are facing charges of public fund mismanagement filed by EFCC at the State High Court in Katsina.
Others standing trial with the governor are former Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Sani Makana; former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government Affairs, Lawal Safana, and former ALGON Chairman, Lawal Dankaba.
The court had, at its previous court sitting on February 21, granted the defendants N1 billion bail each.
