Justice Gabriel Kolawole of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Monday, reserved ruling in an application of no case submission filed by the Federal Government against former Senate leader, Aliyu Ndume.
The Court adjourned ruling on motion filed by the prosecution counsel, C.T Emazina (Mrs), dated January 13, 2017.
The defence counsel, Ricky Tarfa (SAN), however told the court that he was not opposing the application, but rather urged the court to fine the prosecution for not filling the motion on time.
In a short rulling, Justice Kolawole adjourned to hear the motion at the instance of the prosecution on the Feb 2, 2016.
It would be recalled that Ndume, who is facing trial for allegedly sponsoring the violent Boko Haram sect, got a reprieve in 2013 as the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, overturned the admission in evidence of records of mobile telephone conversations between him and a former spokesman of the terror sect, Ali Konduga (aka Al Zawahiri).
