In what Bayelsa politics watchers have described as the 'next face of intimidation', the EFCC on Friday, filed a 6-count criminal charge against the former governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva, before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.



Specifically, the former governor who was denied a return ticket by the PDP in the recently concluded gubernatorial election in the state, was accused of siphoning over N6.5 billion from the Bayelsa State treasury between October 2009 and February 2010.

The prosecuting counsel, Mr Festus Keyamo, perfected the filing processes at the high court registry around 2pm Friday.

According to court document, ex-Gov. Sylva will be answering to charges bothering on conspiracy, money laundering and obtaining by false pretence, contrary to sections 1(1)(b) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2004 and punishable under section 1(3) of the same Act.

Beside accusing the ex-governor of looting public fund under the guise of using the monies to augment salaries of the Bayelsa state government, the anti-graft agency further identified three persons whose Bank accounts, it said was used as conduits pipes for transfer of the illicit funds.

It gave their names as Habibu Sani Maigidia, a Bureau De Change Operator with Account No. 221433478108, in Fin Bank, Plc; Enson Benmer Limited with Account No. 6152030001946, in First Bank, Plc and one John Daukoru with Account No. 04800250000418, in United Bank for Africa Plc.

My question is why now, how come they didnt launch the fraud case when he was in the office. This people is full of shit, i never have a trust on them from the time their dept. was launched. At first they were Obasanjo's watch dogs, going after those that were against him. There are too much coruptions within them, i never see any corupted pollitician going to jail in Nigeria for more than 20 years.

He is a very stupid man, how can you fight the president of your country, insulting him on pages of news papers, even if he wants to remove him, he could have begged him to give him ambassadorial post in any country, there is nothing good like humility, next step is embarrass him by arresting him, foolish man  Angry

9ija crime security is very weak, and them use to take bribe also, tomorrow u will hear that he is innocent,,, they should arrest all the efcc and reoganise  another set of people, there is no way they will give example, they have cut many of this useless man but yet they will go free after they eat money,, na bribe when una dey eat go kill all of una one by one useless securities,,,,
