The embattled Justice SYLVESTER NGWUTA, who is being prosecuted before a Federal High Court in Abuja on money laundering and passport fraud charges has said that he is innocent and anxious to defend himself.
He spoke through his lawyer, KANU AGABI, following a request for adjournment by the prosecution Tuesday.
The lead prosecuting counsel, OLUFEMI FATUNDE, had earlier on Tuesday requested an adjournment till today to enable the prosecution produce some certain exhibits in court.
A Staff Officer of the Department of State Service, JOHN UTAZI, through whom the prosecution sought to tender the said exhibits, had started his testimony on Tuesday and was scheduled to continue on Wednesday in anticipation that the exhibits would have arrived court.
But after the case was called and lawyers announced appearances today, the lead prosecutor, FATUNDE, expressed regret that she would have to seek an adjournment due to the unavailability of the exhibits being expected.
