The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has filed a notice of appeal to challenge the ruling of Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Federal High Court which acquitted Abiodun Agbele.

Also, an associate of the former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, and three others, in the 1.2billion naira money laundering charge brought against them by the commission.

Agbele and 3 companies linked to him and Fayose, namely Sylvan Mcnamara Limited, De Privateer Limited, and Spotless Investment Limited were listed as the first to fourth respondents in the appeal.

The ₦1.2billion naira is said to be part of the sum of ₦4.7 billion belonging to the Federal Government and allegedly transferred from an account associated with the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) in the Central Bank of Nigeria.

On the 21st of June, 2024, Justice Dimgba upheld the no-case submission of Agbele and ruled that he had no case to answer.

In the notice of appeal, the EFCC, through its prosecuting counsel, Senior Advocate of Wahab Shittu listed 17 grounds of appeal and sought two reliefs from the Court of Appeal.
