EFCC Reacts To Acquittal Of Former President Jonathan’s Cousins Azibaola In $40m Fraud Case

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has reacted to the acquittal of Robert Azibaola, a cousin to former president, Goodluck Jonathan, who was charged for $40 million fraud before Justice Nnamdi Dimgba.

Tony Orilade, EFCC Head of Media, described the judgement as unfortunate.

The EFCC expressed concern that despite the weight of evidence brought before the court and witnesses presented, Justice Dimgba held that, “the prosecution must show directly how the defendant took possession of funds and knew that it forms part of proceeds of corruption.”

It disclosed that the commission’s legal team “will be studying the judgement thoroughly and will be taking necessary actions to appeal it as we hope that the appellate court shall view the merit of the prosecution and do justice to the case.”

  1. Hope efcc will next time gather enough evidence before heading to law court. Judgement always based on weight of evidence and not media trial.

  2. Come to think the commission already sentenced him to jail medially even when the court hasn't say so. EFCC shouldn't be a prosecutor and a judge in their own case, they shouldn't arrogate to themselves the duty of the judiciary. It's so worrisome seeing them losing cases because of not doing their job thoroughly.

    1. what is medially? TJ, stop typing rubbish!

  3. Efcc, very useless set of witches

  4. Go after Oshomole, Rotimi, El rufai and co that

  5. They should allow this man rest. They froze his accounts, making him incapacitated to pay his rent @ clan place Maitama and his staff.
    Took possession of his Maitama space close to the powa area and brought down his casino via fire 🔥 and lots more 🤦🏽‍♀️. Na wah for wich hunting’s thing ooo.

    Please leave Jonathan’s families alone and go after the former president himself.

  6. Efcc should get more evidence next time, media propaganda does not work in court

  7. Efcc that never wins any case
