Friday November 11, 2022
Justice Mohammed Yunusa of the Federal High Court, Kano today November 10, 2022 adjourned till December 5, 2022 for arraignment and hearing of other applications by Abdulsalam Abdulkarim Zaura.
Zaura is due to be arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in line with the Court of Appeal, Kano Division’s ruling which quashed his acquittal of a $1.3million fraud charge in June 2020 by Justice A l Allagoa of the Federal High Court.
In a unanimous decision, a three man panel of justices led by Justice Abdullahi M. Bayero said the lower court erred in acquitting the defendant and directed his retrial before another judge. But Zaura has so far failed to appear in court for arraignment on two previous occasions
