Idachaba also informed the court that the second prosecution witness was in the premises to testify.

The testimony was, however, not heard as Abbo’s counsel, Adegbite Adeniyi, applied for an adjournment.

Adeniyi said he would need time to study the additional proof of evidence as they had just been served with it.

He said: “The law gives us the right to be given time to go through such proof of evidence before the case can continue.”

The application for adjournment was not opposed by the prosecution counsel and the case was subsequently adjourned till November 19 for continuation by the magistrate, Abdullahi Ilellah.
