The Federal High Court, Abuja, has dismissed all the charges of corruption brought against the former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. Ruling in the case on Wednesday, June 10, Justice Ahmed Mohammed condemned the EFCC for abuse of court processes.
Reacting to the ruling, in a statement on Wednesday, Sylva’s media aide, Mr. Doifie Buokoribo, said, “The ruling today by Justice Ahmed Mohammed has at long last vindicated Chief Timipre Sylva, and ended an elaborate game of cat and mouse being played by EFCC on purpose to frustrate the political life of the former governor.
“The judge clearly accused EFCC of interfering with the administration of justice and abuse of court process while dismissing all the corruption charges against the former governor.”
It would be recalled that last week, the Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Chukwu had struck out similar charges against Sylva instituted by the same EFCC.
Buokoribo said, “All the multiple charges by EFCC against Sylva and his associates had a single aim: to persecute, intimidate, and harass him, and in so doing, destroy his political career.
“We are happy that at last, justice has been done in this matter. We are very much relieved that all the attempts by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan to keep Sylva away have failed.”
