Earlier, counsel for Onnoghen, Okon Nkanu Effiong (SAN) urged the tribunal to dismiss the charge on the grounds that the charge is defective and that the prosecution did not prove beyond reasonable doubt the elements and ingredients of the offence.

However, prosecution counsel, Aliyu Umar (SAN) urged the tribunal to discountenance the submission of the defense and return a verdict of guilty against Onnoghen.
