Justice Olasumbo Goodluck of FCT High Court , Maitama, on Thursday adjourned indefinitely the trial of Senator Dino Melaye , being tried for allegedly giving false information .
Melaye , representing Kogi West , was dragged to court on two counts bordering on giving false information, offences he denied committing .
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the judge , on Wednesday , adjourned until May 17 , and ordered the defence counsel to take appropriate steps to explain the absence of the defendant in court .
Goodluck, in her ruling on Thursday on a motion for adjournment by Mr . Ricky Tarfa ( SAN ) , Melaye ’s counsel , held that the prosecution did not doubt the health problem of the senator .
“From the gamut of the entire facts placed before the court, the prosecution did not controvert the fact that the defendant was in the National Hospital ’ s Intensive Care Unit.’’
