A Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday, January 25, 2021, has dismissed a $2million money laundering charge filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, against Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie, a lawyer to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.

Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke held, among others, that the EFCC failed to establish that the money said to have been delivered to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2019, was illegal.
