An Abuja Federal High Court yesterday set January 25, 2013 to deliver judgment in the case of Edmund Ebuware, who is standing trial for allegedly participating in the October 2010 Independence day bombing.
Ebuware was initially standing trial alongside Charles Okah, Obi Nwabueze and Tiemkemfa Francis (who died early this year in prison custody), but he applied to be tried separately.
He is alleged to have had prior knowledge of the bombing and did not disclose to appropriate authorities.
Justice Gabriel Kolawole adjourned after Counsel adopted their addresses.
Earlier, Ebuware's Counsel, Goddy Uche, told the court that the extra-judicial statement obtained from his client could not be relied upon as his confessional statement.
Uche said there was no admission by the accused to indicate that he committed the offence and that the prosecution has not proved its case beyond reasonable doubt to warrant the accused person's conviction.
