Reprieve came for Lagos House of Assembly speaker, Adeyemi Ikuforiji,  as he was discharged of money laundering charges preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. He and Oyebode Atoyebi, his aide were alleged of laundering N600 million. The judge called the trial “anachronistic” and should have been disallowed.

“This proceeding should have been treated as an aborted trial and the charges should have been withdrawn,” he added.
