He accused the anti-graft commission of frustrating the trial of the Chairman of Galaxy Transportation and Construction Services Limited, Engr. Babagana Dalori.

The Presiding Judge of Court 10 at the Federal High Court in Abuja, questioned EFCC for failing to produce Dalori to answer his charges.

He said it appeared the anti-graft agency had the intent to frustrate their detainee’s trial by “hurriedly” filing four charges against Dalori at the Upper Area Court 2 in Nyanya on Wednesday 24 hours to hearing in the litigation at the Federal High Court.

Counsel to EFCC, Maryam Aminu was represented at the Court.

Lead counsel to Mr. Dalori, Joe Kyari Gadzama (SAN) and four other lawyers of the Galaxy Ltd Boss also attended hearing.

Gadzama, while making a case for his client, also demanded that N100million be paid as damages for the violation of his fundamental human rights by the EFCC.

Justice Taiwo, however, ordered EFCC to produce Dalori at the next court hearing on September 10.
