Farouk Asks Court To Quash Charges

Embattled former Chairman of the ad hoc committee on Fuel Subsidy Regime; Representative Farouk Lawan and the Secretary of the Committee, Boniface Emenalo  have commenced moves to thwart their trial as they asked an Abuja High Court to quash the charges brought against themby the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The duo was accused of receiving $620,000 from oil mogul, Femi Otedola as an inducement to influence the report of the committee in favour of Zenon Oil and Gas Limited. 

Their lawyer, Mr Rickey Tarfa (SAN), contended that the court ought not to have granted the anti-graft agency leave to prefer the charges against the defendants because the prosecution failed to provide adequate materials necessary for the judge to exercise his discretion to grant the application.

He thereafter pleaded with the court to quash the charges and discharge the accused persons as there was no prima facie case against them and added that the foundation of the case against his clients was not legally laid. (source: olekubuzz.blogspot.com)
