Wale Babalakin Turns To Odili’s Judge In Effort To Evade Arrest and Prosecution

Justice Ibrahim Buba
By SaharaReporters, New York

In another dramatic twist, the embattled chairman of Bi-Courtney, Wale Babalakin, who is currently holed up at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) has filed another lawsuit at the Lagos High Court to restrain the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission from arresting or prosecuting him for money laundering.

A federal judge in Lagos last week threw out a similar application after SaharaReporters exposed the deal.  Mr. Babalakin’s original lawyer also withdrew from the case last week.

However, from his hospital bed at LUTH, Mr. Babalakin has repackaged the same lawsuit and the case has been assigned to Justice Ibrahim Buba, the Federal High Court judge who is infamous for granting the perpetual injunction in Port Harcourt that the EFCC has used as an excuse for not prosecuting the former governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili.  

Mr. Odili stole several billions of Naira from Rivers State, but he has never been brought to account as the EFCC, under Mrs. Farida Waziri, conveniently claimed it could not prosecute the former governor due to Justice Buba’s ruling.

The judge granted Mr. Babalakin accelerated hearing after the application came before him earlier today.

Mr. Babalakin’s case before justice Buba is scheduled for action on Thursday.

Excuse me. The UN cannot

Excuse me. The UN cannot usurp the duties of the Pope. Whenever he gives you the proofs you requested, you should recommend him to the Pyope for an award.

Knowledge

My brother, first, I respect you for your show expression of high intelligence. I assume that you are a learned man. Please tell the people. I don't know which dictionary to use, Cambridge or Oxford but since you have broken it down to letters abc I think I am ok. I have explained that a man is innocent until proven guilty. The law does not want to send innocent people to jail, that's why he gives the opportunity to take a plea and go through a trial, but how do will tell these people.Exactly that's the issue, why the assumption that once a person is beong prosecuted he is automatically guilty.

A man is presumed innocent by

A man is presumed innocent by the law until proven gulity,go back to the basics and rudiments of the law. A person must be knowledgable as regards the facts of a case before he can even utter a word in publicor else he stands the risk of being regarded as extremly ignoramus. the guy's BP has risen seriously, the guy is seriously ill you we de ignorant why not get the facts before castigating.

Hmnn everybody is holy, dem go de talk talk, He who is the most righteous, be the first to cast the stone meanwhile half of them cheated during SSCE or GCE, I am not acquitting Babalakin,I don't care about him.I don't even want to know what he looks like. I am just saying that the Holiest of the holiest should cast the stone first. Yes Babalakin has girlfriends.Are you still a virgin sir. I'll assume that you are married. If you married as a virgin, give me your proof and i'll write to the UN to give award and make you an ambassedor for sexual purity.

ARREST

THE DOCTORS IN DAT HOSPITAL SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR HELPING BABALUTHER TO EVADE JUSTICES.THIS MAN IS HEAL AND HEALTHY!

babrogue

The EFCC should never fold its hands to watch the corrupt judge, Justice Ibrahim Buba, who has already named his price for Babalakin, and will most likely grant Wale Babalakin, the crook, a PERPETUAL INJUNCTION have his way.

bacorrupion

LIKE IBORI LIKE BABALAKIN, LIKE JUSTICE IBRAHIM BUBA. IS JUSTICE IBRAHIM BUBA ABOVE THE LAW? SUCH CORRUPT JUDGES SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAVE THEIR WAY, GOD FORBID!. EFCC GO AFTER HIM.

UP EFCC!

Why is Mr. Babalakin this cowardly? Why develop cold feet if you can't do the time? Nigerians need to come out hard on corruption, else we will have no other country to run to when the chips are down!

Thumbs up for EFCC for the wonderful investigation.

BABAROGUE

KUDOS TO EFCC FOR A METICULOUS INVESTIGATION ON BABALAKIN IS A FISRT CLASS ROGUE, HE HAS BEEN EVADING ARREST, SAT IN A HOSPITAL LOOKING FOR AN AVENUE TO RUN, WHEN THAT FAILS HE STARTS LOOKING FOR CORRUPT JUDGES . TAKE LIKE A MAN YOU STOLE SO GO DO YOUR TIME . THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING, PRISON IS WAITING FOR YOU MR BABALAKIN.

This Report Smells of Peppersoup

Corruption itself starts with Sahara Reporters. Report yourself now.

EFCC HAS NO CASE

It is now clear that EFCC has no claim against Babalakin> It is only relying on blackmail through sahara reporters. Why is Sahara Reporters blaming Hon. Justice Buba for the decision in Odilis case. If the case was wrongly decided why did the EFCC not appeal the deciision, Babalakin is a first class lawyer and businessman. He must defend himself with the best of talent.

Are you Peter Odili’s PRO or

Are you Peter Odili’s PRO or an on looker crying louder than the bereaved?

ROGUES ARE NOT WEALTHY

@Alozie
"Most of the wealthy in Rivers State today owe him their gratitude"

Sahara might have used the wrong word been a journalist ... But you, making such a dumb comment - that people owe him gratitude - shows what a low life money worshiper you are ... by the way Rogues are not wealthy just rich ... bunch of parasites, shame on you.

THE MAN PETER ODILI

PETER ODILI MAY BE BASKING IN THE EUPHORIA OF THIS TEMPORARY REPRIEVE GRANTED HIM BY A CORRUPT JUDGE IN A CORRUPT COUNTRY BUT IT WILL BE SHORT LIVED. SOON AND VERY SOON PETER ODILI WILL SURELY GO THE WAY OF IBORI.

PUNK

THIS GUY IS A PUNK, LOOK AT HOW HE IS EVADING ARREST, YOU GO SIT IN A HOSPITAL LOOKING FOR AN AVENUE TO RUN, WHEN THAT FAILS YOU START LOOKING FOR CORRUPT JUDGES . TAKE LIKE A MAN YOU STOLE SO GO DO YOUR TIME . OR BETTER YET SETTLE EFCC THEY WANT MONEY TOO OR DONT YOU KNOW EVERYONE HAS A PRICE. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING PRISON IS WAITING FOR ALL OF YOU

BABALAKIN RUINED A WHOLE BANK & NIPOST IN THE NINETIES.

Wale Babalakin 419ed NIPOST in the nineties and since then, NIPOST could not recover.

He also confiscated the shareholders and depositors funds in a Merchant in Victoria Island where he was Chairman and the bank went under. When he was arrested and taken to Failed Bank Tribunal in Enugu.

This same crook arranged and got moved out of prison custody and secured a bed in a hospital and spent more than18 months there. He is repeating the same act now.

Wale Babalakin is a certified 419er. I am praying for him to be there in the Lagos hospital, when, we the 99% will go on the streets to look for them, the thieves.

The evil that men (and/or

The evil that men (and/or women)do will live and die with them.

Nemesis will come up calling one day.

Let others beware including their godfathers.

The man looks like a thief , he will be stone when the revolution commence. Due to his corruption Odili is now a free man after looting River state blind.

ONLY IN NIGERIA,AFTER OBNOXIOUS VERDICT,HE REMAINS A JUDGE

Babalakin as a member of Nigeria's looting,plundering and pillaging elite knows exactly where his bread is buttered hence he has resorted to shop in the court of a Judge who has rendered one of the most obnoxious verdict in the history modern judiciary.
I do not blame Babalakin,he knows that there are willing hands in the judiciary ready to circumvent justice for a given price,he may have "settled" all issues regarding this case.
So we must brace up and wait for the hatchet judgement soon,anything is possible under the present powers that be in Nigeria especially if you have PDP-SOUTH-SOUTH CONNECTION.

too bad Sahara reporters

Why on earth will you state categorically that Odili stole billions of naira when you don't have any proof. This your report is subject to litigation. Your editors should learn how to use words and please respect our dignity. He may be corrupt but he was the best thing that happened to most people in rivers state. Most of the wealthy in Rivers State today owe him their gratitude.

Off Point

We are talking of the rich thieves. That was how you people said Ibori was innocent and the same man started pleading in London for his dubious activities. This is one of the reasons Nigeria is sunk! Rich and dubious minded people are always looking for the loophole in the law to defraud this nation. No right minded person will be envious of them because sooner than later what they gathered or they themselves will soon disappear. And for you to come out categorically that Babalakin did not collect any contract means you are a right hand of the man. So, may be you need to tell us more

CASE IS BEFORE A NAMED YOUR PRICE JUDGE.

Justice Ibrahim Buba has already agreed that to do the job. The defence counsel in the case is an in-law to a two-years-ago retired Supreme Court judge who set Ibori free when he( Ibori) was standing trial for stealing building materials in Abuja.

This corrupt judge was then in the Appeal Court in Abuja. He ruled that Ibori was not the man that the judge in the lower court confirmed that he jailed.

Wale Babalakin who is also a business partner of this thieving retired Supreme Court judge was the go between. Bribe money from Ibori was passed to the judge in Dubai through Babalakin. Babalakin and the corrupt judge own hotels in Lagos together.

This Name Your Price Justice Ibrahim Buba will grant Wale Babalakin the crook, on Thursday, a PERPETUAL INJUNCTION hence the accelerated hearing . The stage is set already!!!

I WEEP FOR NIGERIA!!!!

Innocent until proven Guilty

Why is Wale Babalakin trying to avoid prosecution if he feels he is not guilty? For now he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of Law.

So he should be advised to do the honourable thing go to court and prove that EFCC's allegations is not right.

You miss the point Ogbeni naija

You miss the point Ogbeni naija, Babalakin never collected a contract..you small minded assume everyone pursued by EFCC is guily...you are so wrong..the poor minded always hate the rich...its a pity

This Is What To Expect From Justice Ibrahim Buba.

Justice Ibrahim Buba has already agreed that to do the job. The defence counsel in the case is an in-law to a two-years-ago retired Supreme Court judge who set Ibori free when he( Ibori) was standing trial for stealing building materials in Abuja.
