Defence Counsel’s Absence Stalls Arraignment of Kano Senatorial Candidate, Zaura
The arraignment of the Kano Central Senatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Abdulkarim Saleh Abdulsalam aka A.A Zaura, on multiple fraud charges before a Federal High Court, Kano suffered yet another postponement today, January 30, owing to the absence of the defence counsel.
It is the fourth time the arraignment failed to proceed mostly because of the politician’s failure to appear in court.
At the last adjourned date, the matter could not go on due to the absence of both the Zaura and the trial judge.
But Zaura was in court today, having been picked up at his residence by operatives of the Commission.
However, when the matter was called, the prosecution counsel, A.T Habib informed the court that she was in receipt of a letter from the defence counsel, I.G Waru, informing her that he would not be in court as he has a matter at the Supreme Court.
