The trial of musician, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley at the Federal High Court in Lagos has been adjourned till December 11th and 12th following a heated argument over space to seat in the court this morning.

The trial resumed for hearing today October 24th but as the judge settled in to hear the case, the lawyer representing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Rotimi Oyedepo and Naira Marley’s counsel, Olalekan Ojo, SAN, and two other senior lawyers, began to quarrel over seats available in the court.

The trial judge, Justice Nicholas Oweibo, was forced to adjourn the case till December 11 and 12, 2019 in the heat of arguments among lawyers.

The Federal High Court in Lagos where the trial is taking place has serious challenges over space, as the courtrooms are generally small.
