Bawa: Conviction Of EFCC Boss Set Aside By Court

The contempt proceedings and all the orders of the conviction for contempt against the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa have been set aside by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The proceedings were set aside by Justice Chizoba Oji on Thursday after hearing an application brought by the EFCC Chairman.

The application was filed pursuant to Section 6(6) (a) and Section 36(1) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), Section 91 of the Sheriffs and Civil Process Act, Cap S6 Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria  2004 and other relevant enactments.

It was found out by the court that at the time of the order, Bawa was not in contempt of court as he had complied with the order that the Respondent’s Range Rover be released.

Also, the EFCC Chairman via several internal memoranda had initiated the commission’s internal mechanism to ensure the payment of the sum of N40, 000,000 to the Respondent.
