EFCC burst Governor

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alleged on Monday that a bank manager in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, helped the former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Gooluck Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Dr. Waripamo-Owei Dudafa, to hide stolen funds.

The Commission, through its counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, stated this in a written address in opposition to Dudafa’s no case submission.

EFCC arraigned Dudafa and Iwejuo Joseph Nna before Justice Mohammed Idris of the Federal High Court in Lagos on 23-count charge of conspiracy to conceal proceeds of crime amounting to over N1.6billion on June 11, 2013.

The prosecution closed its case on March 16, but the defendants opted to make a no-case submission.

Praying for the dismissal of Dudafa’s no-case submission, Oyedepo urged the court to direct him to open his defence.

The prosecuting counsel said it was not in doubt that the EFCC had established the essential ingredient of the offence of conspiracy against the defendants considering the testimonies of the seven prosecution witnesses and exhibits tendered.

Oyedepo said: “My Lord, the evidence on record shows clearly that the first defendant (Dudafa) was appointed by the Federal Government of Nigeria as the Senior Special Assistant to the President –Domestic/Household and Social Events between the years 2012-2015.

“The evidence on record shows that in the course of this service, huge sums of money which are not the first defendant’s salary and allowances were traced to accounts which he procured the second defendant (Nna) to open, maintain and operate in fictitious names.

“The second defendant, who at the material time was the Branch manager in Yenagoa branch of Heritage Bank, acceded to the request of the first defendant and agreed with him to conceal these funds in the accounts opened in the name of Seagate Property Development and Investment Limited, Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited, Ebiwise Resources, Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited, Rotato Interlink Services Limited and De Jakes Fast Food and Restaurant Nigeria Limited.”

Oyedepo argued that the evidence on record established a prima facie case that the funds were received in foreign currencies from Dudafa by Murtala Bashir Abubakar through the State House staff.

He said Abubakar thereafter converted the currencies to naira and credited the accounts nominated by Dudafa “in grand conspiracy with the second defendant.”


  1. After browsing the entire web and seeing weak points of view, I thought my life was over. If there is no answer in your life that solves the problem you solved through the post, it will be a serious case, and if I don’t notice your online blog, it will have a negative impact on my career. Your own expertise and kindness are priceless.

  2. My friend is a raincoat, even if I ca n’t think of it on a sunny day, the rainy season will accompany you; my lover is a thick cloth, even if it is not beautiful, it can cover the wind and cold; my parents are old jackets, although they are not fashionable, even stupid, but they are the warmest and warmest .

  3. Some people have never had a chance to see each other. When they have had a chance to meet, they hesitate again. Some love has never had a chance to love, and when I have a chance to love, I no longer love.

  4. Maybe, there are ten people who want to step you under your feet, but your strength makes them have no chance to reach out. Don’t complain about this world’s weak meat and strong food, you will gradually discover.

  5. There is a kind of love that is deeply in love, but can’t say it; there is a kind of love that obviously wants to give up, but can’t give up; there is a kind of love, knowing that it is suffering, but can’t hold back; Can’t take it back already.

  6. Time will always give you the answer, who is the one who really hurts you and who really cares about you; who is who you care about but who cares nothing about you. Some people are not worth cherishing too much, while others are worth cherishing

  7. Some things turn around for a lifetime. I didn’t know each other at first, but finally I didn’t know each other. If love is just passing by, why bother here. Some love, had to settle each other, suddenly looking back, I can no longer tell.
