Adoke appears in court with walking-stick



The embattled former Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Mr. Mohammed Adoke (SAN), on Wednesday appeared at the Gwagwalada Division of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, for his arraignment on fraud charges instituted against him and others by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

He was brought to the court for the Wednesday’s proceedings in a bus occupied mainly by the EFCC operatives and some policemen.

Adoke, who stepped out of the white bus on the court premises at 1.50 pm, walked into the courtroom using a walking stick as support.

Dressed in white with a cap to match, the ex-AGF appeared pale but put up a smiling face.

Surrounded by friends, he walked to the courtroom as fast as he could, unsupported by anyone.

When he arrived the courtroom, he greeted a battery of Senior Advocates of Nigeria, including Chief Wole Olanipekun, Chief Mike Ozekhome, Solomon Umoh, Olalekan Ojo, A. U Mustapha, and Paul Erokoro, seated in the courtroom.

After exchanging pleasantries with the senior lawyers, he chatted with some other lawyers before he later took his seat beside the dock.
