EDO 2020: Court adjourns Ize-Iyamu’s trial over alleged 700million Naira fraud till July 14
APC gubernatorial candidate, Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu is currently facing an eight-count charge of money laundering over N700 million reportedly used to prosecute the 2015 Edo State governorship election.
Other defendants in the suit filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), are former Deputy Governor of Edo, Lucky Imasuen; immediate past chairman of the PDP in the state, Dan Orbih and two others.
At the resumption of trial on Tuesday, the first defendant Mr Ize-Iyamu failed to appear in court due to illness.
His counsel, Charles Edosomwan presented a medical report to the court to validate his claim, while hoping that his client would be in court on the adjourned date.
The trial could not hold last Tuesday due to the absence of the trial judge.
