Alleged N11.5bn fraud: Absence of EFCC witnesses stalls Alao-Akala’s

Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala

The trial of a former governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, and two others for alleged N11.5billion fraud was on Friday stalled, due to the absence of the prosecution witness.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting Alao-Akala, Hosea Agboola, a former Commissioner for Local Governments under the administration and Femi Babalola, a businessman.

It would be recalled that Justice Olalekan Owolabi of the Oyo State High Court had on Jan. 16 issued witness summons on an official of the EFCC, Mr Muhammed Goji and six others.
