Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Thursday, January 19, 2023, reserved judgment in the money laundering trial of a former Head of Service of the Federation, HoS, Steve Oronsaye till April 5, 2023.

Oronsaye is facing trial, alongside Osarenkhoe Afe, Fredrick Hamilton Global Services Limited, Cluster Logistics Limited, Kangalo Dynamic Cleaning Limited and Drew Investment and Construction Company Limited in a 49-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N2billion.

At Thursday’s session, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission adopted its final written address as ordered by the court on October 24, 2022 after the defendants closed their case.

Addressing the court, prosecution counsel, O.A Atolagbe, said the prosecution through oral evidence of witnesses and documents tendered in evidence proved its case beyond reasonable doubt to warrant conviction of the defendants for the offences for which they were charged.
