Alleged missing N35m: Defence counsel’s ill health stalls trial of JAMB official

Tue Jan 14th, 2020 - Abuja (FCT)

The trial of Yakubu Jekada, one of the accused persons charged with the misappropriation of N35 million belonging to JAMB, was stalled in an FCT High Court, Maitama, due to the defence counsel’s ill-health.

Jekada was first arraigned on May 31, 2018, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) before Justice Peter Affen of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), sitting in Maitama, Abuja.
He was arraigned on a four-count charge bordering on criminal breach of trust and dishonest use of JAMB funds to the tune of N11.189 million.
