EFCC wins as Appeal Court cancels Justice Dimgba’s acquittal of ex-Air chief Umar
The Court of Appeal has set aside the judgment of a Federal High Court in Abuja in the case against ex-Chief of Air Staff Dikko Umar.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) prosecuted him for alleged theft of military funds between 2010 and 2012.
The defendant faced a money laundering charge – among others – involving N66million belonging to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba had ruled that the EFCC failed to provide evidence that Umar used the money for the renovation of his property in Abuja.
The judge said it would be dangerous to speculate that a retired officer must be aware of every NAF financial transaction.
In February 2021, Dimgba dismissed six out of the seven charges the EFCC filed against Umar.
The agency, through its counsel Sylvanus Tahirm, then asked the appellate court to overturn the verdict.
Ruling, a Court of Appeal panel led by Justice Elfrieda Oluwayemisi Williams-Dawodu upturned Justice Dimgba’s judgment.
The court ordered the defendant to continue with his defence on counts 1,2,3,5 and 6
