The defendants pleaded not guilty before Justice Rilwan Aikawa, a new judge.

The judge had taken over trial after Fani-Kayode applied for the previous one, Muslim Hassan, to recuse himself from the trial on the grounds that he was the EFCC officer who signed a criminal charge filed against him.

Hassan worked as an EFCC legal officer before his elevation to the bench.

He ordered the return of the file of the case brought against Fani-Kayode by the EFCC to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta for re-assignment to another judge.

He then directed Fani-Kayode and his co-defendants to go and await further directive from Justice Auta.
