High Court approves serving of Order compelling EFCC to arrest and prosecute Oshiomhole | BellaNaija

Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole

The Federal High Court in Abuja has approved an order seeking to compel the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest and prosecute Adams Oshiomhole.

Daily Trust reports that an “anti-corruption crusader,” Osadolor Ochei, had filed the application before the High Court.

Ochei accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman of diverting Edo State funds for personal use when he was governor.

Justice Anwuli Chikere, who approved the order, also ordered that the EFCC be also served with the same court process and the service be done within 5 days, starting from October 9.

Ochei’s lawyers, West Idahosa, presented 86 exhibits before the court, and said documents and pictures of the governor’s houses were available, “whose earnings all his life cannot acquire” and vouchers of airfares whose amount “are enough to buy air carrier for the Edo State people.”

    I wish I could see those exhibits. I remember when Adams Oshiomole’s name inspired hope in people. How these people throw away their good name for filthy lucre will never cease to amaze me.

      Always knew he was a Con Man (canoodling with IBB in private and lodging at only 5-star hotels as a trade union leader), and when as Edo Gov he told that widow selling stuff on the roadside in Benin City to “go to hell” it merely publicly confirmed what many already privately knew!
