A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Thursday, discharged and acquitted the former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Andrew Yakubu, of the money laundering charges filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), acting on a tip-off in 2017, stormed Mr Yakubu’s residence at the Sabon Tasha area of Kaduna State and found $9,772, 800 and £74,000 in a safe.

However, after a five-year legal battle, Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed, in a judgement, held that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission failed to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt.

When the verdict was given in his favour, Yakubu got emotional and couldn’t control himself, as he was seen shedding tears of joy.

The clergyman while reacting to the Abuja-Kaduna train attack said the major cause of insecurity in Nigeria is the lack of respect for God and his prophets by the government of the day.

In a statement signed by his Media Aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele said he had warned against terrorist attacks on Nigerian airports, railways, and train stations but “because of the arrogance the government has towards God, they never bothered to listen or follow his instructions on how to avert it.” Read here.
