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.

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.
