Subsidy Scam: Keyamo writes Adoke, files 4-count charge against Farouk, Emenalo

Tenders proof of evidence; gives AGF 6-days ultimatum to endorse charge

ABUJA- Sequel to the expiration of the ultimatum he handed to the Police last week, Lagos based lawyer, Mr. Festus Keyamo, Wednesday, entered a 4-count criminal charge against the erstwhile Chairman of the House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee on fuel subsidy probe, Farouk Lawal for allegedly collecting the sum of $3million as bribe from oil mogul, Mr Femi Otedola.

Also joined as the 2nd accused person in the charge which was filed before the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court was former Secretary of the fuel subsidy probe Committee, Mr Boniface Emenalo.

Keyamo maintained that the proof of evidence adduced against the two lawmakers over the alleged role they played in the cash-for-clearance scandal, indicted them to acts of criminal conspiracy, gratification and criminal intimidation contrary to sections 96 and 396 of the Penal Code Act, Laws of FCT, as well as, Section 12(1) (a-b) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, Cap C31, LFN 2004.

According to him, their offence is punishable under section 97 and 387of the two aforementioned Acts, respectively.
Meantime, in view of the seeming unwillingness on the part of both the Police authorities and the Federal Government to prosecute the case, Keyamo, has given the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, SAN, a 6-days ultimatum to either okay the already drafted charge or hands-off the matter to enable him as a private prosecutor to conduct the trial.
