Justice Mohammed Idriss fixed the date sequel to the application by Kalu’s lawyer, Chief Awa Kalu, SAN, through the second defendant’s counsel, K.C Nwofo, SAN, who said that he came into Lagos on Sunday with him but suddenly took ill.

He urged the court to adjourn the case to enable the SAN recover from the sickness.

Mr Adeniyi Adebisi, who appears for the prosecution did not oppose the application for an adjournment.
