Justice Adebukola Banjoko of an FCT High Court on Wednesday morning paused the delivery of judgement in the fraud case against former governor of Plateau State, Senator Joshua Dariye.
Dariye signalled to a court official around 10:30am and whispered something to him.
The official subsequently informed the judge that Dariye had requested for a short break to be able to use the restroom.
At exactly 10:35am, the judge, who was still addressing the preliminary issues raised in the written address by the defence, saying the court would rise for few minutes to allow Dariye “use the bathroom”.
Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday presented its first witness in the ongoing trial of Dariye’s son, Nanle, who is standing trial on a 6-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N1.5billion before Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
