A Federal High Court, Abuja on Monday admitted in evidence six volumes of documents tendered in evidence by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against a former governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako.

Nyako along with his son, Senator Abdul-Aziz Nyako, Abubakar Aliyu and Zulkifikk Abba, are standing trial before Justice Okon Abang on a 37-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy, stealing, abuse of office and money laundering to the tune of N29 billion.

Five companies that allegedly served as conduit pipes for the illegal diversion of the funds – Blue Opal Limited, Sebore Farms and Extension Limited, Pagoda Fortunes Limited, Tower Assets Management Limited and Crust Energy Limited – were equally charged before the court.

The documents, which comprised of payment vouchers from the Office of the Secretary to the Adamawa State Government, were tendered through the state’s Chief Executive Officer, Accounts, Adamu Yahaya.

Yahaha, who is the tenth prosecution witness, had on May 17 told the court that he “took records of payments made on the approval of the governor and reported the same to the Office of the Secretary to the State Government between 2008 and 2014.”

The bundle of documents showing copies of  payment vouchers from the Office of the Secretary to the State Government for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 were tendered and admitted in evidence as Exhibits E1, E2a and E2b, E3a and E3b, E4a and E4b, E5a, E5b and E5c, and E6, respectively.

The matter was afterwards adjourned to June 20, 2017 for continuation of trial.
