The Federal High Court in Kano State has discharged and acquitted former minister of foreign affairs, Aminu Wali accused of receiving N950 million campaign fund from PDP during 2015 presidential election.
It would be recalled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is prosecuting Mr Wali and Mansur Ahmed with three count charges bordering around N950 million campaign fund received from People Democratic Party PDP in 2015, an act that contravened Section 1 of money laundering Prohibition Act 2011.
However on Friday, while delivering the judgement, the trial judge Lewis Allagoa said the prosecution has failed to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Following this, the judge Lewis Allagoa, therefore, discharged and acquit the defendants.
