Aghajani, who has been held in detention pending the verdict, was in court alongside his alleged Nigerian co-conspirator. The judge said he needed more time given the complexity of the case, promising a verdict on May 13. The pair were arrested in 2010 after 13 containers of weapons were discovered at the Lagos port of Apapa and have been on trial since February 2011.
