Court strikes out firearm charge against Emefiele
A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday struck out the firearm charges against the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo struck out the charge for want of diligent prosecution, following the withdrawal application made by the Director of Public Prosecution of the Ministry of Justice, Mohammed Abubakar.
At the last adjourned date, the DPP made an oral application to the court to withdraw the charge against Emefiele.
He stated that the application was informed by imaging facts and for circumstances that need further investigations and urged the court to grant the application.
