Before the charge was read, Aernan informed the court that the accused, had been in the anti-drug agency since 2014, when he was arrested.

He added that his arraignment had been stalled due to lack of a sign interpreter, who he said, was recently provided.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Consequently, the prosecutor urged the court to adjourn for trial of the accused, as he has submitted himself for trial.

The Counsel to the accused, Mrs. O. Ozobia, did not oppose the application for adjournment and trial of the accused
