At the resumption of proceedings on Monday, Awomolo informed the tribunal that the defence intends to call between two and three witnesses.

He said one of the proposed witnesses is Mrs. Nwafor. He proceeded that an order be made for the issuance and service of a subpoena on Mrs. Nwafor, summoning her to appear before the tribunal to testify in the case of the defence.

Lead prosecution lawyer, Aliyu Umar did not object to Awomolo’s application, following which the tribunal Chairman granted Awomolo’s application and ordered that Mrs. Nwafor appears before the tribunal at 10am on April 3.
