Wilson Ujuwaren, EFCC: The trial of a former governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, continued on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 before Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Gudu, Abuja, with a defence witness, Stephen Igmala, acting General Manager, Plateau State Road Maintenance Agency, denying knowledge of how equipment used by the Agency were procured.

Igmala, while being examined by the defence counsel, G. S. Pwul, SAN, said: ‘‘I started working in the Agency as a Principal Technical Officer in May 2000. I have no idea about how, and when the equipment were procured. We received them from the Ministry of Works in 2000, and are still using them till date. We didn’t pay for the equipment; the state government did”.
