A High Court of The Federal Capital Territory has set aside its order remanding the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, for contempt of court.
Justice Chizoba Oji equally set aside the contempt proceedings and all the orders of conviction for contempt against the EFCC chairman.
Justice Oji set aside the proceedings today after hearing an application brought by the EFCC chairman.
Spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, has since confirmed the development.
The EFCC boss was pronounced guilty of contempt for his refusal to return a car and 40million naira, which the commission seized from a former director of operations at the Nigerian Air Force, Naf, Rufus Ojuawo.
