The hearing of the alleged N3 billion fraud charge brought against Ali Bello and three others by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been adjourned to July 17 and 18, 2023 for continuation of trial.

When the matter in the suit marked ABJ/CR/573/2022 (FRN Vs. Ali Bello and 3 others) was called for hearing on Tuesday, counsel for Ali Bello and others, led by Marianne Ediawe, informed the court that they had filed a letter for adjournment on May 26, 2023 and also served the EFCC on the same date.

They informed the court in the said letter that A.M. Aliyu (SAN) would be before the Presidential Election Petitions Court on the day of the hearing.

Counsel for the EFCC, Rotimi Oyedepo (SAN), conceded to the adjournment.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu consequently adjourned the matter to July 17 and 18, 2023 for continuation of trial.

The court had on February 20, 2023 granted bail to Ali Bello alongside three others in the sum of N500 million.
