The absence of Justice Okon Abang on Thursday stalled the anticipated arraignment of the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Vice Marshal Alex Badeh (retd.) before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice Abang, whose court the case was assigned, could not arrive from Lagos where he also sits in another court.

The prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), told reporters that barring any unforeseen circumstance, the arraignment of the former defence chief should take place between Friday and Monday.

Mr. Badeh was charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on 10-counts of criminal breach of trust and corruption.
