Alleged Diversion of Funds: Court Fixes Oct 23 to Hear Suit against Oshiomhole

An Abuja Federal High Court Tuesday fixed October 23 to hear a suit seeking to invoke an order of mandamus to compel Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, for allegedly diverting public funds to his personal use. Justice Anwuli Chikere directed that relevant processes in the suit, marked FHC/ABJ/CS/628/2018, lodged before the court by Edo State-based cleric, Bishop Osadolor Ochei, should be served on EFCC and Oshiomhole within the next five days. The court made the order after it heard an ex-parte motion moved by counsel to the applicant, Dr. West Idahosa, urging it to declare that EFCC has a statutory duty to investigate different petitions that contained allegations of financial recklessness against the former governor of Edo State. The applicant alleged that Oshiomhole, who was sued as the 2nd respondent, while in office as Edo State governor, acquired property in USA, South Africa and Dubai worth billions of US dollars and far in excess of his legitimate income. He alleged that Oshiomhole built a sprawling mansion worth more than N10 billion in Iyamho, Edo State.
