Court overrules Maina’s plea to reject EFCC evidence against him

Mon Jan 13th, 2020 - Abuja (FCT)

Justice Okon Abang of the Abuja Federal High Court on Monday overruled Abdulrasheed Maina’s plea to reject documented evidence presented against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Justice Abang, said that the defendant was not in a position to determine before the court which document was relevant to the case of the prosecution.

He said that any document the prosecution decided to bring before the court to proof their case, provided it was admissible to the law, such documents will be admitted in evidence.

He however noted that whether the court will consider the document relevant to a case before it, was entirely a different issue.
