JUST IN: {Grass Cutting Fraud} Court Acquits Babachir Lawal

Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal has been discharged and acquitted of the allegations of ‘grass cutting’ fraud.

Gatekeepers News reports that Lawal was standing criminal prosecution alongside Hamidu David Lawal, his younger brother; Sulaiman Abubakar; Apeh John Monday and two companies, Rholavision Engineering Ltd, and Josmon Technologies Ltd.

They were re-arraigned on a 10-count charge bordering on diversion of funds, criminal conspiracy, and official corruption to the tune of N544 million.

In a judgment delivered on Friday, a high court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) held that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) failed woefully to establish prima facie case against the defendants.

This is a developing story.
