The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Monday, November 19, 2012 asked Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja to strike out the application by one Oyelakan Bayode seeking to be named as a party in the $15 million Ibori bribe forfeiture hearings.
At the resumed hearing of the case, counsel to EFCC, Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, said Bayode has not disclosed any interest other than merely saying he is a Nigerian citizen and a beneficial owner of the said money. “My Lord, that is a mere assertion, he is not even from Delta State but a refrigerator repairer from Lagos, residing at Alagbado in Lagos state.

“ When a third party seeks to be joined in a case, he needs to show that he is an interested party in the subject matter, in this case my Lord, he has not done so.” Jacobs stated.
 

He averred that when seen from the point of view of the order by Justice Kolawole asking interested party to come and claim ownership of the fund, the intervener applicant was merely asking to manage the fund.
 
The same point was echoed by Charles Ajuyah , SAN, counsel to Delta State Government who told the court to dismiss the application as the intervener‘s purpose was to manage the fund and not claiming ownership.  “That is not what the court is interested in, we (Delta State) it is our own and we know how to manage it,”Ajuyah stated.

The case has been adjourned to Friday, November 23, 2012 for ruling on the application.

“In the campaign each leading man plays a different archetype, layering codes of dress in a subtle parody of power and role-play. Exaggerated poses and conspiratorial glances hint at the game, a palm solemnly placed on the heart or into a pocket with precise formality,” concluded the company. The images will start turning up in magazines in three weeks, likely in August issues of mags.

They are all thieves

All of them- including the people behind Niger Deltan claim-are thieves.What has Delta Government done about other and similar stealing by the same governor?

Is it when somebody has recovered the stolen money that they now know it belongs to them? They should, like any claimer show proof of ownership. Barayi.

For the others, the judges should be courages enough to send them to prison for turning our courts into arena for entertainment/clowning.
