Alleged N29bn Fraud: Nyako, Son Lose Bid To Stop Charges At Appeal Court

Former Adamawa State Governor, Vice Admiral Muritala Nyako and his son, Abdulaziz Nyako have lost their bid to stop the N29billion money laundering charges brought against them by the Federal Government, IgbereTV reports.

The Court of Appeal in Abuja dismissed their appeal seeking to terminate the fraud case against them on the grounds that the exhibits and evidence provided by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) did not link them with the commission of the alleged offences.

In a unanimous judgment of a 3-man panel of Justices of the Court of Appeal, the former Adamawa Governor and his son were ordered to go and defend themselves in the N29billion fraud against them.

 

Justice Olabisi Ige who read on behalf of the panel held that both oral and documentary evidence tendered against them by the EFCC effectively and sufficiently linked them with the alleged fraud.

The appellate court said the appeal of the former governor and his son were devoid of merit, liable for dismissal and were consequently dismissed
