Witness tenders evidence against Gbenga Daniel

The first prosecution witness, a business development manager, Mr Babatunde Adeluola testifying against former governor of Ogun state, Gbenga Daniel completed his testimony on Friday.

The former governor is facing a 38 count charge of financial impropriety levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

At the resumed hearing of the case at the Ogun state High Court, the witness told the presiding judge, Justice Olanrewaju Mabekoje that his failure to appear in court at the last sitting was due to illness.

When counsel to the former governor Prof Taiwo Osipitan(SAN), tried to cross examine the witness on alleged threats to his life, an allegation made by the EFCC at the last sitting, counsel to the anti-graft agency, Mr Rotimi Jacobs vigorously opposed the line of questioning.

Justice Mabekoje had to intervene by ordering that a formal complaint should be made at the Ibara police station in Abeokuta and after investigations, the police were to make their findings available to the court.

While answering further questions on the two statements of accounts of Blue Chapel LTD, a company owned by the former governor, the witness agreed with the defence counsel that there were ambiguities in the transactions listed in the two exhibits before the court.

He however clarified after the court’s ruling that there were some pages missing in one of the exhibits while the other was a fuller compilation of the transactions of the company.

The witness was discharged and Justice Mabekoje adjourned to the 9th of July after the EFCC informed the court that the next sets of witnesses were not in court to testify.
