The anti-graft agency is prosecuting Air Marshal Amosu and his co-defendants for an alleged fraud of 22.8 billion naira.

Led by the prosecutor, Rotimi Oyedepo, Owobo claimed that his team of investigators uncovered how funds were moved from the Nigerian Air Force Special Emergency Operation account into the accounts of three companies.

The witness told the court that the investigators later discovered that one of the three companies, Timsegg Investment Limited, was operated by one of the defendants.

Justice Mohammed Idris admitted in evidence, the statements of accounts of the company, and also admitted the account documents of one Hebron Housing and Properties Company, which was also allegedly used to divert the Air Force funds.

An Attempt to tender the bank documents of another company, Gbemisola Ventures, said to also be owned by Air Commodore Gbadebo, was however resisted by the defence team.

Justice Idris has adjourned till February 22 for ruling on the admissibility of the documents and for continuation of trial.
