The Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday heard that former Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) Chairman Mr. Yusuf Danjuma slumped while having a bath and was hospitalised.
He is on trial with former Minister of Aviation Chief Femi Fani-Kayode and former Minister of State for Finance Senator Nenadi Usman for alleged money laundering involving about N4.6 billion.
Their trial was billed to resume yesterday, but Danjuma, a former chairman of Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State, was absent.
His lawyer K.C Nwofo told the court that he received a call in the early hours of Tuesday from Danjuma’s wife that the third defendant collapsed in the bathroom.
He said the wife had called out neighbours in their Jere Kaduna home, who joined in taking Danjuma to the hospital.
Nwofo said since he was yet to get a copy of the hospital report, he did not know what Danjuma suffered from.
Justice Rilwan Aikawa adjourned until June 11 and 12 for continuation of trial.
