Ike Ekweremadu, the former Deputy Senate President, will remain behind bars until October 31 because the case has been postponed once more.
Ekweremadu appeared in court on Thursday, and the judge continued the case for a hearing until the end of October. He will remain in custody.
Recall that the Nigerian senator initially testified in court in London’s Uxbridge magistrates’ court, where he vigorously denied all of the accusations.
Both Ekweremadu and his wife were denied bail and remanded in custody while the case was adjourned to July 7 and now August 4, 2022.
However, on July 2nd, his wife, Beatrice was granted bail under strict conditions.
Sources gathered that Ekweremadu put in a request for a new counsel on Wednesday. However, the Nigerian senate ably represented by Adamu Bulkachuwa (in brown kaftan), senate committee chairman on foreign affairs, was in court to show support for Ekweremadu.
Only 20 people were allowed into the court premises to witness proceedings and any and all recording devices were barred.
