FG appoints new prosecutor in Justice Ngwuta’s case

Olufemi Fatunde of the Federal Ministry of Justice, has been appointed as the Lead Prosecutor in the trial of Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, a Supreme Court Justice standing trial for alleged corruption.

At the resumed hearing of the case in Abuja, Fatunde announced her appearance as the new Head of the Prosecution team following the withdrawal of the former lead prosecutor, Charles Adeogun-Philips.

Fatunde made an oral application seeking an adjournment of the case to enable her study the file and also interview the witnesses.

The lawyer to Justice Ngwuta, Kanu Agabi, did not oppose the application and Justice John Tsoho subsequently adjourned the case to sometime in March for continuation of trial.
