Mr Femi Falana, SAN, the lead counsel to El-Zakzaky has disclosed that Justice Gideon Kurada has fixed the date of his client, El-Zakzaky in court.
Falana told reporters shortly after the adjournment, adding that he prayed the Court to rules in favour of his clients.
” We did indicate last time that even though the prosecution called 15 witnesses, we felt that no case has been established to warrant our clients being in court.
“The court took our addresses and fixed July 28 for ruling on the No-Case-Submission,” Falana said.
Mr Dari Bayero, lead Counsel in the “secret trial” had at the close of their submission, on March 31, prayed the Court to sentence the defendants.
“We are satisfied with the way the case has gone so far, we have presented 15 witnesses, including Army Generals, who are key actors and players that led to the filing of the case against the IMN leader.
“One of our prayers is that the court should overrule the No-Case-Submission, overrule the defence, convict the defendants accordingly, and pass the necessary sentence as provided for in the law,” Bayero said.
The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge.
