A High Court sitting in Uyo, of Akwa Ibom State, on Monday, adjourned trial in the case of electoral fraud involving one professor Ignatius Uduk of the University of Uyo to January 13, 2021.

Professor Uduk is standing trial for allegedly declaring and publishing false election results during the TWENTY NINETEEN State House of Assembly elections when he served as collation/returning officer at INEC office, Afaha Ikot Ebak in Essien Udim Local Government Area.

The adjournment followed application for a minor amendment to the charge by INEC prosecution counsel, Barr. Kpoobari Sigalo, over the discovery that the written statement was not in the case file.
