The Economic And Financial Crimes Commission EFCC has on Thursday say that the trial of one Chandra Singh, an Indian, for an alleged N816, 361,386.75 fraud before justice I.O. Ijelu of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos could not continue as scheduled today, Thursday, December 15, 2022, due to the absence of the defence counsel, Hassan Olanrewaju.

 Singh was, on November 24, 2022, arraigned on a 19-count charge bordering on retention of stolen property and bribery by the Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
