An appeal brought before the Supreme Court seeking to stop the federal government from re-opening the criminal forfeiture proceedings against a former Head of State, the late General Sani Abacha, and some members of his family have been dismissed.
We reports that the Supreme Court on Friday threw out the case filed by members of the family of the late Sani Abacha to stop the re-opening of proceedings over their alleged complicity in the looting of the nation’s treasury during Abacha’s administration.
It was gathered that in the Court’s unanimous judgement read by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the apex court held that the concurrent findings of facts and the matter are unassailable.
The Court based on that consequently dismissed the appeal and ordered the parties to bare the cost of the legal action.
