Court acquits Bankole, Nafada of corruption charge

A Federal High Court in Abuja today Tuesday 31st January 2012 acquitted former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, and his deputy, Bayero Nafada, of all charges of corruption, saying they have no case to answer in connection with a N40 billion misapropriation charge.

So EFCC arresting them and the 17-count charge was all for show? #isorai

That's what the Abuja courts do,dismiss cases of fraud since they all are fraudsters and accomplices.everyday is for the thieves but just one day,I mean one day, for the owner.
Bankole and his parner in crime may go out and live with the money, but I know, Karma is just around the corner!!

Partners in crime they even walk hand in hand.Hands tainted by corruption yet they were. May God save us Amen

It's the state high court not Federal High Court and he was discharged based on a no case submission filed by their counsel, which means the prosecution had no case. Next time EFCC should investigate properly before charging people to court.

This judgement is a charade ,thieves and fraudsters are let off the hook without batting an eye lid.Corruption has come to stay in Nigeria,when would we get things right in this country. 1.3 billion just went down the drain and disappeared into thin air,these our corrupt leaders i dey hail una o!!!

The pastors & the imans are all contributors to these problems. These thieves are celebrated in churches and in mosques. Woe to those pastors that are not preaching the truth, Says the Lord God the Almighty. I rest my case.

No surprises here. The case was always rubbish and based on pure sentiment. The Law is about what you can prove and EFCC did not have a shred of evidence against these guys. Even their argument as to why they were charged seemed very watery. A first year Law student would have made minced meat of the charges in this case.

Bankole was charged,tried and was found INNOCENT. Every other sentiment and opinion rendered here is hot air.My personal opinion is that Mr. Dimeji Bankole is one of the greatest politicians to have emerged from Nigeria's political landscape. As Speaker of the house, he played a stabilizing role in the polity.In the nearest future, we shall still hear and see more of this Gentleman.

Hehehehehehehehe!

Based on what...?

Is this then how we plan to eradicate the canker-worm of CORRUPTION in Nigeria?

Without any cause or reason whatsoever, someone just woke up one fine morning, and decided to accuse Bankole and Nafada of possibly having misappropriated 40 Billion Naira...merely sending the EFCC chasing shadows?

And now an Abuja court summarily decides that "the duo have no case to
answer"...?

Or maybe the EFCC as usual did not do its homework...?

Nigeria cannot be serious about fighting corruption.

show of shame.....why are this dirty politicians dragging the judicial system into the mud....efcc should go back to the drawing board

It is rather unfortunate that the presiding judge over thia case will come down with such a decision. His reasoning for aquiting the bank thief(Ole)is "constitutionally, the speaker had nothing to do with the accounts of the House and rapped the clerk of the House whose function it was to manage the accounts, for allowing the speaker to usurp powers of his office" what an absurdity? what a travesty of justice? who the hell is the clerk of the House to question the directives of almighty (OLE)Bankole in the House? are we talking about Nigeria or what? whatever happened to VICARIOUS LIABILITY in law. Never in the anals of jurisprudence have I seen such a blatant dishoney of and for the law by a judge. Belgore whatever his name is should be brought to the books for truncating justice because he has been settled by B...OLE. Mustapha was just sentenced to death because he was arguably the mastermind in the murder of Abiola's wife. He did not pull the trigger, he as in his residence in Abuja when she got shut but the shooting was under his directives. What is what is called Respondeat Superior. You Nigerians have a long way to go to be able to straighten the affairs of this your country because everybody's thinking process is I,ME and MYSELF alone. it is pathetic. If EFCC does not prosecute anybody, they get blamed for not doing anything. If the prosecute, the Nigerian judges are so corrupt that they sell their rulings. I weep for this country that will die with POTENTIALS because they will never realize their dreams. Go down memory lane: Ibori, Egbenedion, Peter Odili,Tinubu,Babangida, Eleumelu and his commitee on power, all the looters of the treasury where are they now. They are the king and queen makers of the country and getting honored by the government by way of OBE, CON and all that BULLSHIT.
