Bribery Allegation: Court Adjourns Tarfa’s Trial



Tribunal Reveals How It Will Deliver Judgement On Petitions

A Lagos High Court sitting in the Igbosere area of the state has adjourned the trial of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Rickey Tarfa, till May 30.

Naija News understands that the presiding judge, Justice Adedayo Akintoye made the decision after being informed that Tarfa could not attend trials due to a surgery which has left him on a wheelchair and unable to climb the staircase leading to her courtroom at the single-storey foyer of the court complex.

Mr Tarfa is standing trial before the court on a 26-count charge of offering gratification to two judges of the Federal High Court – Justices Hyeladzira Nganjiwa and Mohammed Yunusa.

The case has been stalled since January 21, when Mr Tarfa obtained the permission of the court to travel abroad for medical attention.
