The Plateau state high court has dismissed the no-case submission made by the former governor of the state, Jonah Jang over his corruption trial by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Channels TV reports that the presiding judge, Daniel Longji, said Jang has a case to answer in the alleged case of misappropriation and diversion of state funds instituted against him by the EFCC.
Legit.ng gathers that Longji said Jang and his co-defendant have explanations to give regarding charges preferred against them.
The anti-graft commission is prosecuting Jang alongside a Plateau state government official for alleged corruption and misappropriation of Plateau state funds to the tune of N6.32billion.
As Justice Longji is reportedly set to proceed on retirement, the case will be returned to the state chief judge for reassignment to another judge.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the EFCC arrested a suspected fraudster, Onyebuchi Julius, for impersonating the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.
The commission's spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement he issued on Friday, December 20, said that Julius was arrested in Owerri, Imo state capital, on December 6.
He said the suspect focused on Business Email Compromise (BEC) for his cybercrime activities.
