Abuja Court Adjourns Melaye’s Case Indefinitely On Health Grounds by DONSMITH123(m): 5:28pm On May 17
Justice Olasumbo Goodluck of FCT High Court, Maitama, on Thursday adjourned indefinitely the trial of Senator Dino Melaye, being tried for allegedly giving false information.

Melaye, representing Kogi West, was dragged to court on two counts bordering on giving false information, offences he denied committing.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the judge, on Wednesday, adjourned until May 17, and ordered the defence counsel to take appropriate steps to explain the absence of the defendant in court.

Goodluc, in her ruling on Thursday on a motion for adjournment by Mr. Ricky Tarfa (SAN), Melaye’s counsel, held that the prosecution did not doubt the health problem of the senator.

“From the gamut of the entire facts placed before the court, the prosecution did not controvert the fact that the defendant was in the National Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.’’

The judge, therefore, adjourned the case sine die (indefinitely) pending the recovery of the senator from his illness.

Earlier, Tarfa, in an application to justify the senator’s absence, informed the court that his client was still lying critically ill at the National Hospital.

He tendered a medical report, signed by one Dr. Olaniran, Director of Medical Services at the National Hospital, Abuja, which confirmed that the senator was being managed at the ICU.

Tarfa urged the judge to consider the ill health of the lawmaker as a special circumstance that warranted his absence from trial.

He urged the court to adjourn the trial pending the time his client would recuperate from the sickness, and be able to stand before the court to answer the two counts against him.

Responding, the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Magaji Labaran, urged the court to discountenance the exhibits attached to the defendant’s affidavit, as they did not meet the requirements of the Law.

He added that the elements in the medical reports did not indicate that the defendant cannot come to court to stand trial.

We all know what happened under the curtain...

Saraki and other APC had moved in to the matter btwn him and Gov. yahyah bello and dispute btwn them is bn settled So the case will die a natural death.

Dino is coward and a learner. He learnt his lesson that it takes 3 senators and 9 house of rep members to make a governor thus he can’t do jack to that useless governor called hello. sad

Worst is Dino’s hand sef isn’t clean, he thinks he can manipulate everything to score cheap political points.

Useless senator and useless governor.

Very good judgement by the Abuja court. So his trial in Kogi can go on unhindered without clashing with the one in Abuja. The one in Abuja concerns his attempt to escape police custody when he was being transported to Kogi. Hopefully after he's found guilty in Kogi for unlawful arms possession, he will then face the law in Abuja for attempting to escape police custody.
The era of impunity is over for all these bastards that think they own Nigeria!

You have no clue what you're talking about. The trial has been adjourned indefinitely because he's under trial in another court in Kogi! When his trial in Abuja was up for hearing, he was still sorting out the terms of the bail the Kogi court granted him and couldn't therefore appear before the Abuja court. The judge had no choice but to adjourn indefinitely till the prosecution can guaranty that his trial in Kogi will not clash or interfere with the one in Abuja.

The major problem with our judiciary is corruption. This judge has obviously been compromised.

The law allows the accused to get medical attention and such will be communicated to the court through a medical Director of government owned hospital.

However, the medical report will specify when the patient will be able to attend his trial. It CANNOT be indefinitely.

This is like closing the case file because the court will now WAIT until Dino declares himself fit for trial.
