Court acquits former Niger governor in N1.940bn money laundering case

Tue Feb 11th, 2020 - Lagos

A state high court sitting in Niger state on Tuesday acquitted a former governor of Niger State Mu’azu Aliyu and two others of an alleged N1.940b money laundering case.

The court ruled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) did not show diligence in prosecuting the case brought against Aliyu.

The court said the prosecution counsel was not present and did not send any representative during the hearing of the case which led to three adjournments.
