Court Vacates Contempt Order Against EFCC Chairman Olukoyede

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Abuja has vacated its earlier order of the court directing the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, to arrest the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ola Olukoyede, for disobeying a ruling of the court which asked operatives of the commission to vacate a property at Number 6, Aso Drive, Abuja.

Justice Abubakar Hussaini Musa upheld the submission of the EFCC Counsel, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Rotimi Oyedepo, that Mr. Olukoyede could not have willfully ignored or disobeyed the order of the court.

He asked the court to vacate the contempt proceedings against the EFCC’s boss, assuring that all the issues involved between the parties in the suit would be resolved.

Responding, Justice Musa said he knew that the EFCC Chairman was not aware of the order, prompting him to direct the Chairman to present himself at the court.

The judge, thereafter, vacated the order and purged Olukoyede of the contempt proceedings.
