Court adjourns Jang’s N6.3bn trial to December 4th

By - - [General ]

The Plateau state High Court sitting in Jos has adjourned the corruption case involving a former Governor of Plateau State, Senator Jonah Jang, who was accused of misappropriating state fund amounting to N6.3billion to December, 4th, 2018 for the definite hearing.

The case was adjourned due to Jang’s absence. His lawyer told the court that was suffering from high blood pressure and low sugar level.

“And his doctor advised him to, at least rest for a week to enable him recuperate, that’s the reason we are seeking for the adjournment,” he requested.

The counsel to the Plaintiffs, Rotimi Jacob didn’t object the request for the adjournment.
