The Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the N19.2 billion fraud charges filed against former Bayelsa state governor Timpre Sylva by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. At the resumed hearing of the case today,
Justice Adeniyi Ademola dismissed the case, saying it was an abuse of court process.
