However, Justice Liman while delivering judgement, ordered that the defendant continue on the bail earlier granted.

The judge also adjourned the case until April 21 and April 28 for trial

Recall that the anti-graft agency had on April 18, 2019, arraigned Ajumogobia before Justice Aikawa on an 18-count charge, bordering on breach of trust, false statement and unlawful enrichment

Ajumogobia was also accused of concealing the total sum of N12 million in a Bank account of Nigel & Colive Ltd owned by her.
