Justice Hakeem Oshodi of an Ikeja High Court, Lagos on Tuesday warned counsel to Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike alias “Evans” that no further delays would be tolerated in his ongoing trial.

Justice Oshodi gave the warning following a 30-minute verbal exchange he had with Mr Chinonye Obiagwu, Evans’ new defence counsel who had prayed for an adjournment to study the case file.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Obiagwu is one of the 31 newly-shortlisted Senior Advocate of Nigeria for induction on September 24.

Justice Oshodi said, “I cannot come from home during vacation to be told that the matter will not go on for one excuse or the other.

“Counsel should desist from filing applications targeting at stalling trial, parties must get their witnesses ready, so that justice will be served within reasonable time frame.”

NAN reported that Evans had on various occasions hired two defence counsel; Mr Olukoya Ogungbeje and Mr Noel Brown to represent him. The changes in defence counsel had caused delays in the trial.
