Others charged along Isa included Ade Obege, Abdullahi Isah, Michael Bamidele and Ahmed Ajayi.

However, the trial judge, Fola Ajayi, struck out the matter.

Ruling on the matter, the judge held that the prosecution counsel could not open his case despite four adjournments, hence he struck out the matter.

Ajayi, however, gave a consequential order for the prosecution to start their case afresh whenever they are ready.
