Ifeanyi Ubah

Mr r. Ifeanyi Ubah was arrested by the Special Fraud Unit under Police Commissioner Tunde Ogunsakin (now rtd AIG). The suspect confessed that he imported fake fuel into the country and was paid N11 billion from the Petrol Subsidy Fund on the orders of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

However, Mr. Ubah’s release from detention was ordered by the former President. To stop any further investigation of the fraud Mr. Ubah’s lawyer, Chief Wole Olanipekun SAN sued the Police, EFCC and co. Even though Mr. Ubah was arrested and detained in Lagos the case was instituted in Abuja.

The judge who decided the case was Justice Abdu Kafarati of the Federal High Court. In a matter of days, the judge granted all the reliefs of the lawyer. Specifically, the judge granted a perpetual injunction restraining the police and EFCC from ever arresting and prosecuting Mr. Ubah in connection with the fraud of N11 billion.

When some whistleblowers recently petitioned President Buhari over the case he was very angry over the use of a Nigerian judge to cover up the fraud of N11 billion. Since the Department of State Security was not restrained by the federal high court President Buhari directed it to recover the entire proceed of crime. It is not clear whether Mr. Ubah has briefed his lawyer to file a new case against the DSS.

This is how the present govt keep messing up the corruption fight and losing very high profile cases, if justice Kafarati ruled in favour of Ifeanyi Ubah and ordered perpetual injunction against DSS, instead of govt appealing the decision, they are here engaging in another media trial…
