ENUGU – The trial of former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, yesterday, suffered another setback as the trial judge, Justice Benedict Agbata, was said to be on vacation.
Prosecuting counsel from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the former governor’s lawyers agreed with the Court Registrars to adjourn the case to February 23, 2013.
Dr. Nnamani was present in court, while his supporters thronged the court premises in their large number singing Chimaroke – Ebeano solidarity songs and praises to God as they danced in front of the court complex.
The supporters later moved to the state secretariat of Peoples Democratic Congress, PDP, at Ebeano Housing Estate where they were entertained and briefed about the next adjourned date before their departure.
Ebeano supporters from the 17 local government areas of the state came to the court in several buses in solidarity with the former governor, who waived hands to acknowledge cheers from them.
