Dariye's Trial: Defence Makes U-turn, Shelves No-Case Submission.

The trial of a former governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, continued on June 14, 2016 before Justice Adebukola Banjoko of a Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High Court, Gudu, Abuja, with the defence counsel, G. S. Pwul, SAN, telling the court that he has decided to shelve his intention to seek a "no-case" submission and so would want to open his defence. Dariye is being prosecuted by the EFCC for allegedly siphoning the state’s ecological fund to the tune of N1.16 billion.
