Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court, Lagos, has adjourned the ruling on the ‘No case submission’ application filed by Adeyemi Ikuforiji, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Mr. Ikuforiji and Oyebode Atoyebi, his aide, are facing a 54-count amended charge of money laundering amounting to over N600 million.

The Speaker’s counsel had filed a no case submission on Monday, after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the prosecution had closed its case.

Mr. Buba, who initially fixed Friday to deliver his ruling on the defence’s application, said that it was “not ready” due to fatigue.

His attempts to fix a date during the court’s long vacation, which begins on July 14, was opposed by the prosecution.
