Ribadu Free Again. Court Strikes Out Suit. by hillsate: 9:00am On Apr 28, 2010
THE Federal High Court in Asaba, Delta State, on Tuesday, struck out the mandamus suit seeking the prosecution of the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, for alleged abuse of office and other offences.

The presiding judge, Justice Ibrahim Buba, in his ruling, questioned the jurisdiction of the matter, which he considered as misplaced.

The applicant, Steve Osowa, had ,on April 13, urged the Federal Government to prosecute Ribadu for the offences EFCC said he committed while in office to logical conclusion whenever he was sighted in the country

But Ese-Gam Owe, Osowa’s lead counsel, submitted in his argument that the court was one, no matter where it was situated.

He said the non-prosecution of Ribadu might plunge the country into a lawlessness if not properly handled.

He said “an offence is allegedly committed at a particular time, the suspect (Ribadu) left the country only for the EFCC to come out and say that the same offence is being withdrawn. Do we have two sets of laws?”

In his ruling on Tuesday, Justice Buba, who was not convinced with the arguments of the applicant, threw out the case for lack of jurisdiction.

Oh God of creation
Direct our noble cause
Help our leaders right
help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty height attain
To build a nation where peace
And justice shall reign.

and everyone says . . . .

I love this!
Now the courts have cleared him. Its no longer federal government dropping charges against him, so all those haters should not come and bring another allegation again.
Ride on Ribadu , we await your return!
