Court acquits former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Aminu Wali, of all expenses.


The Federal Excessive Court, sitting in Kano, has discharged and acquitted a former Minister of International Affairs, Aminu Wali, arraigned earlier than the court over N950million alleged fraud.

Recall that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had dragged Mr Wali, and one Mansur Ahmed, before the court on a three-count cost for allegedly receiving N950million from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as marketing campaign fund throughout 2015 presidential election.

The offence, in accordance with EFCC, contravened Part 1 of the cash laundering Prohibition Act 2011.

Delivering judgement within the case on Friday, December 11, the trial decide, Justice Lewis Allagoa, mentioned that the prosecution didn’t prove their case past a reasonable doubt. He, subsequently, discharged and acquitted the defendants.
