Gbenga Daniel discharged and acquitted of corruption charges

A state high court in Abeokuta this morning discharged and acquitted the embattled ex-governor of Ogun state, Gbenga Daniel of all corruption charges, saying the EFCC had not provided enough evidence of corruption against him.

Gbenga Daniel was in 2011 accused of money laundering, fraud and corruption while serving as the governor of Ogun state. SMH for our Nigerian courts!

let his case be transferred to uk law court, if he is discharged n acquitted from the charges, then i will believe he is truly innocent of all accusations.

So our Judges are yet to learn from Ibori's case. If this same man get to foreign prison now he wud start confessing his atrocities. Corruption has really suck this nation dry. May God save our land.

The courts have done their jobs. Its the EFCC who failed to provide adequate evidence dat is to blame. This is Naija,anything can happen

Ayo said...

EFCC is a toothless bulldog! all bark and no bite. Would have been very surprised if the outcome was any different. Nigeria...same old, same old. But I am still hoping against all hope that a change will eventually come.

Look at it this way.

Here are the options given to the judges . .just two options:

- declare OGD a free man and yo get $500million

OR

- you and your entire generation are wiped out.


OK . . your choice to choose.

If this same man is tried in the U.K, he'll go to jail for a long time. I wonder how much passed under the table. Justice in Nigeria is sold to the highest bidder! This guy looted Ogun state dry!

It was the same thing local courts said about James Ibori, only for Ibori to admit his guilt before a London court, so perhaps we could send Daniels to London???

He should go to Britain. They WILL find him guilty

ChiChiluv said...

Who did he bribe to get him off?

Momen said...

He shouldn't relax because Asaba High court once discharged and acquitted Ibori of same corruption charges.

Anonymous said...

They should go and try him in u.k

what a country!

Kemi said...

The court didn't say there was not enough evidence, rather that the EFCC amended the charge from 15 to 43 without the leave of the court

ugo frank said...

We know, normal Nigerian judiciary system, he finally settled the people in charge and they let him walk....... He shouldn't have hyped us by fleeing Nigeria few days to end his tenure
