This was disclosed by the anti-graft agency in a post on its official Facebook page on Wednesday.

What Suswam’s request means is that the case brought against him by the EFCC would be adjourned for an indefinite period while he awaits the determination of his case at the Court of Appeal.

Suswam was arrested for alleged involvement in the diversion of N3.1 billion from the proceeds of the sale of shares owned by Benue State since 2015.
