Justice Oluremi Oguntoyibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos today withdrew from the trial of activist-lawyer Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa.

She said would return the case file to the Chief Judge, Justice Ibrahim Auta, for re-assignment to another judge.

Justice Oguntoyibo said she was withdrawing from the case for personal reasons.

With Justice Oguntoyibo’s withdrawal, the case may begin afresh before a new judge.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned Adegboruwa last year may for allegedly dealing in a seized property which the lawyer had pleaded not guilty to the charge and denied the allegation.
