Ikuforiji Acquitted Of N600 million Money Laundering Charges

Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court, Lagos, has discharged and acquitted Adeyemi Ikuforiji, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, from money laundering charges.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had accused Mr. Ikuforiji and Oyebode Atoyebi, his aide, of laundering about N600 million.
In his ruling, the judge described the trial as “anachronistic” and should not have been allowed to continue.
“This proceeding should have been treated as an aborted trial and the charges should have been withdrawn,” he added.
There were wild jubilations by Mr. Ikuforiji’s supporters in the courtroom as the judge ended his ruling.
