A Federal High Court in Ede, Osun State, has reportedly amended its earlier verdict for the detainment of former Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Vice Chancellor, Anthony Elujoba, in Ilesha prison.
Premium Times reports that the reversal came after workers and students of the school protested and locked down the court barring the judge and others from leaving.
Under pressure, the judge sent the former VC to the EFCC custody as the workers and students demanded.
The court also rescheduled the case from July 19 to July 14.
Elujoba, is standing trial for alleged N1.4 billion fraud.
He is being prosecuted alongside the university’s bursar, Josephine Akeredolu.
