The trial of Chukwueme Onwuamadike, better known as Evans, was on Wednesday adjourned.
Evans’ new counsel, Nuel Brown, at the hearing at an Ikeja High Court, asked the court for an adjournment to enable him study the case file properly.
“I humbly ask for time to study the document so that we can…” Brown said.
His application was however not objected by Adebayo Haroun, the state prosecuting counsel.
Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, adjourned the case till October 5 and 19th 2018 for continuation of trial.
Newbreak.ng recalled that Brown was hired by Evans following the withdrawal of Olukoya Ogungbeje, his former lead defence counsel.
Ogungbeje had on June 13 announced that he was withdrawing from the case following threats to his life and for personal reasons.
Evans is standing trial alongside Uche Amadi, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba who are also members of Evans syndicate.
