The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him.

In view of his plea, the prosecution counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, asked the court for a trial date and prayed that the defendant be remanded in prison custody.

Consequently, Justice Olatoregun adjourned the case to October 24 for hearing of the bail application and ordered the defendant to be remanded in the EFCC custody pending the hearing of the bail application.More photos of ex-Ekiti governor, Ayo Fayose, in court today

EPL: Mourinho won’t celebrate if United beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Image result for jose mourinhoIt has been reported that Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has insisted he
won’t celebrate like crazy if his side win at former club Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Mourinho heads back to west London looking for a second successive victory after his side’s dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle last time out, a result that eased some of the pressure that had been mounting on the 55-year-old following a four-game winless run, as well as reports of a bust-up with midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Portuguese has lost on each of his three visits to Stamford Bridge as the Red Devils manager and suffered a 1-0 defeat in the FA Cup final at Wembley in May.

Mourinho played down the significance of his return to a club where he won eight major trophies, including three Premier League titles, over two spells as manager.

“I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years, to do that should be something if I completely lost my emotional control, which is not easy.

“So I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands but apart from that it is another match for me.

“I want to do well for my team, my players, my support. I am 100 per cent Manchester United [on Saturday], no more space than respect for the stadium and the fans.”Image result for maurizio sarri
