The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned the adoption of final written addresses in the alleged extra judicial killing of six Apo traders till October 11.
At the resumed hearing on Wednesday, the first defense counsel, Mr Ricky Tarfa, applied for an extension of time to file and serve his final written address.
The prosecuting counsel, Mr Mamman Osuman, did not oppose the application, but asked the court to grant 21 days to the prosecution to file its reply.
In his ruling, the presiding judge, Justice Ishaq Bello, granted the applications of both counsels.
The Attorney-General of the Federation had in 2005 filed a 9-count charge bordering on conspiracy and culpable homicide against the six police officers.
