Bello and three others were arraigned before the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for an alleged ₦‎3 billion fraud.

When the matter in the suit marked ABJ/CR/573/2022 (FRN Vs. Ali Bello and 3 others) was called on Tuesday, the prosecution, led by Rotimi Oyedepo (SAN), called their first witness Nicholas Oyemomoni from the American International School, Abuja.

Oyemomoni, however, could not complete his testimony because the defence team, led by Abubakar Aliyu (SAN), objected to documents that the EFCC sought to tender in evidence through him.

Aliyu prayed the court to allow him to raise the objection in his final written address while admitting the documents provisionally.

The prosecuting counsel objected to this on the grounds that the documents could not be provisionally admitted.

The judge, Justice Obiora Egwuatu, thereafter adjourned the matter until May 30 and 31 for the continuation of trial.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the court admitted Bello and the three others to bail on February 20 in the sum of ₦‎500 million.
