Peter’s lawyer, Victor Abakpa, appealed with the court to postpone the case until Tuesday, citing the fact that another lawyer from a different chamber had just told the court that he would be taking over the case.

The defendant’s new attorney indicated that he was also served further proof of evidence in the court just before the day’s proceedings began.

I.A Aliyu, the new attorney, indicated that the defendant informed him on taking over the case on June 18th.

As a result, the court adjourned the hearing until 11 a.m. to allow attorneys to properly align themselves and appear before the court.

The offense he allegedly committed, according to the accusation, is in violation of Sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015, Section 221 of the Penal Code, and the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act (VAPP) 2015.
