Idris’ lawyer Benedict Ishabaki was also pulled from the case because he will be helping the prosecution with vital information.

“Wakili wa Idris, Benedict Ishabakaki ameondolewa kumuwakilisha Idris kwasababu atatumika kama sehemu ya ushahidi wa upande wa Jamhuri kutokana na kushuhudia mshitakiwa wake akichukuliwa maelezo Polisi, hivyo anabakia Wakili Jebrah Kambole, kesi imeahirishwa hadi Juni 9, 2020”  added the stamen.
