There was a mild drama at the Federal High Court I Jos on Thursday when a defence counsel asked the presiding Judge to disquailify himself and the prosecuting counsel from an alleged N400 million fraud case. The defence counsel, Mr Uche Mgbemena, is representing Mr Ibrahim Suleiman who is standing trial since 2007 over the amount. He is being tried for alleged involvement in hacking into the system of the defunct First Inland Bank plc, transferring and distributing the amount into his private account and different others without the knowledge of the bank.
