The presiding judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia described the case brought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as ‘feeble’ and duly discharged Fani-Kayode in the absence of “copious evidence.”

It is likely that the EFCC will appeal the judgment at the Court of Appeal though it is yet to make a formal pronouncement.
