The Federal Government has amended the corruption charges filed against a Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, before a Federal High Court, Abuja.
The lead prosecuting counsel, OlufemiFatunde, announced the amendment before Justice John Tsoho.
Fatunde, an ex- Director of Public Prosecution for the Federation, took over the case from the former prosecutor, Charles Adeogun-Philips last month.
She said the amendment to the charges was done under section 216 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.
The defence counsel led by Chief KanuAgabi (SAN) did not oppose the amendment of the charges.
