The case was, on July 7, adjourned to Tuesday following the inability of the 1st defendant (Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu) to appear in court due to ill health.

Counsel to the defendants had earlier filed a preliminary objection challenging the jurisdiction of the court to entertain the suit.

At the resumed hearing, the EFCC’s counsel, Ahmed Imoovba, sought an extension of time to enable the commission file its reply to the objection.

Justice Umar Garba granted the anti-graft agency seven days to file a reply as the court will soon embark on vacation.

He, however, adjourned the case to October 15, for further hearings
