Fraud Charges Against Omokore Continues

Jide Omokore

A Federal High Court in Abuja rejected a suit seeking to drop the $1.6 billion dollars fraud charges against Jide Omokore, a friend of a former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, and others.

The application filed by the fifth defendant in the case, Abiye Membere, was anchored on the contention that the act of EFCC obtaining a witness’ statement about one year into the trial and when two prosecution witnesses had concluded their testimonies, constituted and abuse of court process.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba in his ruling refused to strike out an additional proof of evidence showing the statement made to the EFCC by an additional proposed prosecution witness on June 7, 2017.

The case was commenced in July 2016.
