The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC ) on Monday closed the trial case of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria ( SAN ),  Mr. Rickey Tarfa, for alleged bribery and attempt to pervert the course of justice.

The prosecuting counsel for the EFCC, Mr. Rotimi Oyedepo, told the presiding judge, Justice A.A. Akintoye, on Monday that the prosecution had no more witness to call in the case.

The EFCC had called six witnesses, who testified against Tarfa in the trial which began in March last year.

Responding to Oyedepo on Monday, Tarfa’s lawyer, Mr. Jelili Owonikoko (SAN), sought an adjournment to enable the defence to analyse its case and decide on the step to take.

Consequently, Justice Akintoye has adjourned the case till November 16, 2017 to hear from the defence.
