The Executive Chairman of the Centre for Anti-corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL, Mr. Debo Adeniran, has expressed shock and disgust after a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Andrew Yakubu, asked the Federal High Court in Kano to quash the ex parte order of interim forfeiture on the  $9,772,000  and  £74,000 recovered from him.

“This attempt represents how profoundly immoral and shameless Yakubu is,” Mr. Adeniran said.

“One would have expected him to bury his head in shame rather than resorting to finding ways of maneuvering the judicial processes over his case so he could ‘eat his cake and have it’.

“The level of moral decadence this attempt typifies definitely ranks extremely high in the every known book or records. Examples to like him damages grievously the image of this country and people,” Mr. Adeniran added.

He said the Federal Government and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, should ensure diligence in the prosecution of Yakubu.

“His attempt to scuttle the judicial processes on the case against must fail. And he must be served with well deserved punitive measures in accordance with any criminality established against him.”

“It must be demonstrated to elements like Yakubu that the days when corrupt and sharp practices are perpetrated with impunity are over. They deserve to be put behind bars for their insane lust for lucre and their level of incurable greed.”

“Our Centre appreciates and acknowledges the operations and efforts of the EFCC, and we request that the case of the former GMD be clinically investigated and diligently prosecuted to ensure that not only Yakubu, but all those involved in the mysterious 3 billion naira stash are made to answer for their crimes. Shameless Senior Advocates Nigerian, SAN, like Ahmed Raji who most times are apparently linked to the sharing of loots should also be investigated and should grounds be established that confirm their culpability, they must be punished accordingly.”

“We know some lawyers wait for opportunities like the present to pounce on the scenario to abet corruption clearly because of the fatness of the briefs. Therefore, the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA should also on its own investigate Raji to find out if he has committed any professional act of misconduct with this his watering brief given by Andrew Yakubu.” Adeniran concluded
