Court Stops EFCC From Further Investigation Of Benue Government

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to stop further investigations into the finances of the Benue State Government pending the hearing and determination of the suit filed by the state.

Although all the parties were represented in court by their counsel, the vacation judge, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, insisted that he needs to study the case file, as it was coming to him for the first time.

Subsequently, he adjourned the hearing of the suit to August 29, 2018, after issuing a preservative order, warning all the parties to desist from taking further steps that would destroy the subject matter of the case before the court.
