The trials of a former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke, was stalled on Tuesday by the failure of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to make available to the defendant processes needed to conduct the trial.

The EFCC had re-arraigned Mr Adoke alongside Aliyu Abubakar, a businessman, on an amended 14-count charge bordering on money laundering.
