Why Arraignment Of Ex-NIA DG, Wife Failed To Hold
The trial of the former Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayodele Oke and his wife, Mrs Folashade Oke, did not hold on February 1 as planned.
Mr Oke is being tried at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The counsel to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Rotimi Oyedepo, told reporters that the case was not in the list of the cases for Friday, February 1.
He hopes the case will be called on Wednesday, February 6.
There are rumours that Mr Oke and his wife may have fled Nigeria, but the council to the EFCC does not believe in the rumour.
When reporters raised the issue during an interview session, he said: "Wait till Wednesday to find out".
Mr Oke and his wife are standing trial for alleged $205.9 million fraud.
The case was filed by the EFCC after it claimed it recovered $43,449,947, £27,800 and 23.2 million Naira from Flat 7B, No. 16, Osborne Road, Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.
After the incident, he was suspended by president Muhammadu Buhari.
