FUNAAB Pro chancellor trial, VC; Court picks January 2017

The trio are arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over N409 million fraud.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Justice Olatokunbo Majekodumi picked January 27, February 9 and February 10, 2017 respectively to determine if the court had the jurisdiction to entertain the case or not.

An Ogun State High Court on Monday picked January 27, 2017 for the trial of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, (FUNAAB), Pro-Chancellor, Adeseye Ogunlewe, the institution Vice Chancellor, Prof. Olusola Oyewole and the Bursar, Moses Ilesanmi.

But the counsel to the EFCC, Benedict Ubi, opposed the application, insisting that the court has the jurisdiction to try the accused persons.

Counsel Ogunlewe, Mr. Wale Adesokan, had brought an application seeking to strike out the pro-chancellor’s name from the case, saying the court lacks the jurisdiction to hear the case.
