Shocking: Court Complies With Buhari’s Order, Throws Out Goje’s Corruption Case
The Federal High Court sitting in Jos has thrown out the N6 billion fraud case instituted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] against Senator Danjuma Goje.
Senator Goje is accused of stealing N5 billion between September and November 2010, after forging a document titled, ‘Resolution authorizing His Excellency the Executive Governor of Gombe State to acquire a loan” with Ref. No: GM/HA/RES/VOL. 1/17.
ElombahNews had on June 18 reported that an Associate Professor of Journalism and Newspaper Columnist, Farooq Kperogi, revealed that President Muhamamdu Buhari personally ordered that the former Gombe State Governor, Danjuma Goje’s N5 billion fraud case be withdrawn.
Farooq Kperogi also alleged that all APC senators-elect were bribed with N25 million each to endorse Ahmed Lawan for the senate presidency!
In an earlier report on June 8, this medium published that the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami announced it had taken over the prosecution of Goje from EFCC.
The development came less than 24 hours after the former Gombe State governor withdrew from the Senate presidency race in support of Senator Ahmed Lawal
Kperogi had told Elombah News that someone who witnessed Danjuma Goje’s meeting with Buhari in Aso Rock that it was Buhari who PERSONALLY gave orders that Goje’s N25b fraud case be withdrawn.
The Nolle Prosequi was announced by AGF Malami after the case came up Thursday evening for trial.
Niyi Akintola (SAN) represented Goje while the Ministry of Justice was presented by one Paul Asika at the sitting in jos
