Ex-AGF, Olujimi Accuses FG of Frustrating Dasuki’s Trial. DSS again refuses to produce former NSA in court. Thisday Online

Former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Akin Olujimi (SAN), has accused the federal government of frustrating the trial of former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) in a charge of money-laundering it brought against him.

 

Olujimi told an FCT High Court that it was irritating for government to have persistently and consistently refused to produce Dasuki in court to face in the criminal charges against him even when the ex-NSA is in the custody of the Department of the State Services (DSS) in flagrant disobedience to the bails granted him by several courts.

 

Since 2015, when Dasuki was arraigned before different high courts, he has been granted bail by Justice Adeniyi Ademola and Justice Ahmed Rahmat Mohammed of the Federal High Court as well as Justice Peter Affen and Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf of the FCT High Courts.  Read more

 

EFCC arraigns two whistle-blowers over false information. Tribune Online

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday arraigned two self-acclaimed whistle-blowers, Buhari Fannami and Ba-Kura Abdullahi, on two separate charges before Justice M. T. Salihu of the Federal High Court in Maiduguri, for allegedly giving false information to the agency.

 

The EFCC said in a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, that Fannami and Abdullahi had misled the commission with information about some illegally acquired money purportedly buried at the residence of one Ba’a Lawan but the information turned out to be false after the execution of a search warrant.

 

The anti-graft agency said the defendants allegedly gave the false information on May 8, 2017, adding that they acted contrary to Section 39 (2) (a) of the EFCC (Establishment) Act 2004 and they were liable to be punished under Section 39 (2) (b) of the same Act.  Read more
