N26 million Dasukigate: Fani-Kayode seeks out of court settlement 


.

.

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Monday asked the Federal High Court Abuja to adjourn his case to allow him explore other options of settlement aside from going to trial. 

.

.

The counsel to Mr. Fani-Kayode, Ameh Raji, who made the application on his behalf said that since the sum of money involved was only N26m, he believed that there were other options of settlement.

Mr. Raji, a senior advocate of Nigeria, added that moreover, he was new on the case and would need some time to go over the facts of the case to enable him defend his client effectively.

“My Lord, I am just coming into the case and so I crave your indulgence to enable me familiarize myself with the case. Secondly, looking at the facts of the case and the money involved, I believe that there are other options we can explore.

.

.

The case involves the sum of N26m and the law allows you to explore the option of plea bargain and so many other options rather than go through trial,” Raji said. He said that if EFCC was amenable to plea bargain, the defence would take the option.
