Court Adjourns Ex-Gov’s Corruption Suit

A Katsina state High Court, Tuesday, adjourned till June 6 hearing in a corruption suit against former Katsina state Governor, Ibrahim Shema.

Shema was charged with alleged conspiracy, forgery and diversion of public funds to the tune of N11 billion.

Justice Ibrahim Bako of Katsina State High Court explained that the adjournment was due to an appeal by the defendant challenging the court’s jurisdiction to try the case.

“The court has adjourned the case to June 6, for situation report on the matter,’’ the Judge added.

He said that the court has stepped down the case until the Court of Appeal rule on the subject matter.

Others standing trial with the ex-governor are Sani Makana, former Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Lawal Safana, former Permanent Secretary, Ministry for Local Government Affairs, and former ALGON Chairman, Lawal Dankaba.
