Court dismisses EFCC N19.2bn fraud charges against Timpre Sylva

The Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the N19.2 billion fraud charges filed against former Bayelsa state governor Timpre Sylva by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

At the resumed hearing of the case today, Justice Adeniyi Ademola dismissed the case, saying it was an abuse of court process. He stated that the fraud charges brought against the former governor who is now the APC candidate in the Bayelsa governorship election, had been dismissed by two federal high courts, and resuscitation was tantamount to an abuse of court process.
