Dudafa Says EFCC Is Illegally Detaining Him For Refusing To Incriminate Patience Jonathan

The embattled Senior Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of illegally detaining him for his refusal to incriminate former first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

Dudafa made the allegation in a November 4 petition to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), wherein he also accused the EFCC of deliberately keeping him in detention despite his fulfilling the bail conditions set by the Federal High Court, Lagos.

The commission arraigned Dudafa on June 15, before Justice M.B. Idris on a 23-count charge bordering on the laundering of over N1. 67 billion and he is also standing trial before Justice Babs Kuewumi for other alleged offences.

But in the petition, Dudafa, who was granted N500million bail by both justices, said “despite meeting all the Herculean bail conditions as ordered by the two courts, the commission has failed to fulfil its part, by verifying all the title documents of my sureties”.

He accused the anti-graft agency of punishing him for his loyalty to former President Goodluck Jonathan and his family.

“Various attempts by my lawyer to ensure that the commission deposits my international travel passport with the court since I was admitted to bail have proved abortive, irrespective of the fact that the two courts at various sittings compelled and ordered it to release the said passport.

“The EFCC has also refused blatantly to verify all the title documents provided by my sureties at the Land Registry for over two months in relation to the bail conditions granted me by Justice Babs Kuewumi of a Lagos Federal High Court.

“From the above, it has become obvious that the EFCC is desperate to keep me perpetually in prison with the ultimate aim of killing me in prison despite the fact that my deteriorating state of health has been made known to the EFCC through a medical report dated August 29, 2016, and issued by the Nigerian Prison Service, Ikoyi, Lagos,” Dudafa said.

He appealed to the commission’s chairman “to use his good offices to intervene speedily in my predicament in the hands of the EFCC, as it is clear case of arbitrary abuse of power, flagrant disregard to court order and breach of my fundamental rights as a citizen of Nigeria”.

    Buhari and his dogs are so lawless

    Nigeria is really in deep shit.

  4. They need to amend this stupid constitution. Corruption should not be a bailable offence. This idiots bank on the courts and bail is the new freedom.

  5. Buhari and his cohorts are on revenge mission!!!

  11. I weep for Nigeria, Patience Jonathan admitted the money belongs to her. If you confirm the money belongs to her is not implicating her, you are only confirming what she had already said. Yet you see comments here supporting this looters. These looters are not the problem but Nigerians who support them. If they have no support amongst us they will be forced to retrace their ways. People who loot our collective treasure do not care about us in the first place.
