ABUJA –

 

FORMER aviation minister, Prof. Babalola Aborishade is to return to court over corruption charges, the Supreme Court ordered Friday.

Aborishade and three others, including ex-Director of Nigerian Airspace Management Authority -NAMA, Taju Dairo, and two others, were accused in the suit.

The four were standing trial before a Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja, over alleged mismanagement of airport renovation funds.

The ex aviation minister had appealed the court’s decision to admit in evidence, a statement made by Dairo against him, which was upheld by the Court of Appeal, prompting the appeal.

An appeal by Federal Government against the ruling of the Court of Appeal, prompted the apex court’s order.
