A lawyer to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie, has been cleared of any case of money laundering and financial wrongdoing.
A Federal High Court in Lagos dismissed a $2million money laundering charge filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against Giwa-Osagie.
Delivering a ruling on Monday, Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke held that the EFCC failed to establish that the money said to have been delivered to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2019, was illegal.
