Court clears ex-AGF Adoke of money laundering charges

 

https://punchng.com/breaking-court-clears-ex-agf-adoke-of-money-laundering-charges/

 

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday discharged and acquitted former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke (SAN) of the money laundering charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

 

The presiding judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, while delivering a ruling on a no-case submission filed by the former AGF, held that the EFCC failed to establish a prima facie (sufficient evidence) case against him.

 

I find that there is no evidence to prove the alleged offences against the first defendant (Adoke),” the judge said.

 

However, Justice Ekwo ruled that Aliyu Abubakar, the second defendant, has to open his defence because he has a case to answer.

 

EFCC had preferred a 14 counts charge against Adoke and an oil mogul, Aliyu Abubakar.

 

In the charge, the anti-graft agency alleged that Adoke sometime in August 2013 in Abuja accepted a cash payment of the dollar equivalent of N300 million from Abubakar and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 16(2)(b) of the money laundering Prohibition Act 2011 as amended.
