EFCC Shocked By FFK’s Acquittal… To Respond Appropriately

The spokesperson of The Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement, said the ruling by the Judge, Rita
Ofili- Ajumogobia, was shocking.

A Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday
acquitted Mr. Fani-Kayode of corruption charges, saying the EFCC failed to
prove its “feeble case” against Mr. Fani-Kayode beyond reasonable doubt.

Mr. Uwujaren said, “The
Commission is making effort to obtain a Certified True Copy of the ruling, to
enable it respond appropriately after careful review of the judgment.”

The trial against the former
minister by the EFCC began in 2008, before Justice Ramat Mohammed, for
allegedly laundering about N100 million during his tenure as the Minister of
Culture and Tourism and then, Aviation.
