July 21, 2016 – Fayose’s Money Launderer, Abiodun Agbele Released, EFCC Vows To Fight Back

The EFCC has said it will immediately appeal the ruling of a Federal Capital Territory High Court which today granted bail to one Abiodun Agbele, a suspect who is being investigated by the Commission for a range of alleged criminal infractions bordering on fraud and money laundering.

Justice Olukayode Fadeniyi, in a ruling which the Commission described as “shocking” today offered bail to Agbele and ordered the EFCC to pay the suspect N5 million as compensation for unlawful detention. The judge claimed that the failure of the EFCC to charge Mr. Agbele to court, since his arrest, amounted to an abuse of his fundamental rights.

But the Commission described Justice Fadeniyi’s conclusion as “curious” against the background of the information presented to the court, which included the fact that the suspect is being held with valid remand warrants issued by competent courts.

The EFCC, however, said it is filing a motion for a stay of execution of the ruling.

  1. Check olufakayode ruling is uncalled for as a result the EFCC should act immediately that is contemporary issue .

  2. Nigeria is a nation that needs total reform in our messy, corrupt, and criminal justice system. The justice system in a true democracy serves as a check and balance between the executive branch, legislative arm, and the people or the electorate. But Nigerian justice system has been totally corrupted by members of secret cult and other demonic wicked societies posing has lawyers, judges, and SANs. They have twisted the justice system in such a way that benefits themselves, the mighty, influential, and powerful criminals in both parties. EFCC and PMB admistration can only operate within the stupulated laws and regulations as written in our stupid constitution. EFCC can charge these looters to court with evidence, but those judges still have the final say. This is why our democracy had become a curse instead of blessings that serves judges to the righteous. Why our democracy has achieved nothing meaningful for the betterment of over 170 millions Nigerians living in abject poverty, our criminal politicians for over 18 years, our criminal politicians, their families, and friends are all swimming in billions of dollars kept in various off shores account. My advice for the president and the Chelf Judge of the Federation appointed by the president is to look into and reform our shameful and bastardized justice system that has become criminal gang system in order to sustain our messy democracy and anti-people constitution inacted by military men and unpatriotic politicians. This will be one of the most stressful and difficult job by any administration. But is worth the risk.

  3. Why not charge the man if investigation reveals offence(s) against him? That is what I understand the judge to say. Rather than abuse the judge, change the law that allows a suspect to be released if not charged with offence within a particular period.
    Sometimes I feel sorry for judges because they appear to be the people on trial by public opinion for applying the law in the law books. May God guide them right .

    • @ Big Aunty Koks, that Judge has in fact did something awful. He should never have presided on this type of case. That judge is acting as if the situation of this Country is non of his business. As the situation in Nigeria is now, our Justice department should work in collaboration with EFCC to straighten up our corrupt system not other way round. Even though if the law says a suspect must be charged within 72 hours after his arrest or within a short frame of time, that should not give that judge right to render a nonsensical verdict that he rendered. He only judged based on how long he has been detained not the adverse effect of his crime. How can we fight corruption in this terrible situation where almost three quarter of the Nigerians population are living below poverty line because of our endemic zxcorruption. The judge supposed to know that this is a different case. EFCC has right to detain this guy as long as it has not concluded its investigation on the subject. At times it takes little bit longer for the prosecutor to gather all evidences before it can present it to the court. In the United States, the Secret Service or FBI can detain a suspect indefinitely if such person is arrested on terrorism charges or Aggravated Felony. Even it is the Judge that will first deny that individual bail. Now tell me would you have allowed a terror suspect to go free? allow him to continue on killing spree because your constitution says suspect must be released within 72hours? that law applies to the people who have committed lesser crime not in this case where millions of innocent Nigerians have been killed by corruption. The white people that made that law for you stooge have since changed it.

  4. to me the judge as done nothing wrong… he is just following the written document (constitution) “why the criticism?”
