Mr. Joe Odey Agi, a senior lawyer charged alongside the suspended Justice of the Federal High Court, Justice Adeniyi Ademola for bribery has said the Federal Government is “playing around” with the charges proffered against him.
Speaking with journalists after his arraignment on Wednesday, Agi said although he didn’t hear that the prosecution earlier planned to use him as a witness against Justice Ademola, but it would have been “unfortunate” if that had been the case.
He was accused of bribing Justice Ademola to the tune of N38m through his wife Mrs. Olabowale Ademola and son, Ademide Ademola.
With the trial expected to commence on Monday, January 16th, Agi was granted bail on self-recognition with the sum of N50million. He was also ordered to deposit his international passport and other travel documents to the registry of the court within 7 days.
