At today’s sitting , the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission adopted its final written address as ordered by the court on October 24, 2022 after the defendants closed their case,
Addressing the court, prosecution counsel, O.A Atolagbe, said the prosecution through oral evidence of witnesses and documents tendered in evidence proved its case beyond reasonable doubt to warrant conviction of the defendants for the offences for which they were charged.
While responding to a submission by counsel to first, second and third defendants, Atolagbe prayed the court “to look at the confession of the second defendant, statements of the twenty one witnesses, exhibits and documents tendered and admitted in evidence and convict the defendants accordingly.”
But counsel to the first defendant, Ade Okeaya-Inneh, SAN, prayed the court to dismiss all the counts and discharge and acquit his client. “My Lord should ask where the evidence is”, he said.
Counsel to the second and third defendants, Oluwole Aladedoye informed the court that he has filed a reply to the submission of the prosecution dated October 27, 2022. He prayed the court to dismiss the twenty-seven counts against the second defendant and discharge and acquit the second and third defendants accordingly. “There is simply no evidence”, he said.
After listening to all the parties, Justice Ekwo adjourned the matter till April 5, 2023 for Judgment.
