Court Dismisses FG’s Appeal Against Acquittal Of Justice Ademola’s Lawyer

Court Upholds Acquittal Of Justice Ademola's Lawyer

 

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the discharge and acquittal of the lawyer to retired Justice Adeniyi Ademola, Mr Joe Agi, on an allegation of bribery.

Delivering a judgement, Justice Peter Ige dismissed the appeal filed by the Federal Government on the ground that it was unmeritorious.

The judge further held that the prosecution failed through its witnesses to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Agi, who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, paid Justice Ademola gratification in order to pervert the course of justice.

Earlier in 2918, Justice Jude Okeke of an Abuja High Court sitting in Maitama had discharged and acquitted Agi of a criminal charge bordering on bribing a judge to pervert the course of justice.
