N338m Fraud: S/Court orders re-trial of ex-Lagos Speaker

   A five-man panel of the Supreme Court on Friday ordered the re-trial of a former Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Adeyemi Ikuforiji, who was charged with an alleged N338m fraud. The apex court had reserved judgment to determine whether or not Ikuforiji should be tried afresh, as ordered by the Court of Appeal. On Friday, the panel headed by Justice Mary Peter-Odili unanimously ruled that the case be re-assigned to another judge of the Federal High Court instead of Justice Ibrahim Buba, who had earlier absolved Ikuforiji of the charge.
