Justice Mohammed Idris has adjourned the trial of the alleged N22.8 billion fraud against ex-Chief of Air Staff, Adesola Amosu till Friday, October 21, 2016.
The trial which opened in a Federal High Court, Lagos, saw EFCC lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo, calling his first witness, Mojeed Olatunji, who explained how funds were withdrawn from the Nigeria Air Force account.

He told the court how N2.4 billion was credited into the account on September 11, 2014 and how this was followed by a debit transactions of N959.7 million, N893.2 million and N556.3 million, respectively.
