The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday withdrew charges of conspiracy and fraud relating to petroleum subsidy payments against four persons.
Justice Samuel Candide-Johnson of the Lagos State High Court, Igbosere, struck out the charges following an application by the EFCC.
EFCC's counsel, Mr. Rotimi Oyedepo, said he was instructed by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke (SAN) to withdraw the case.
He said: "We have an information (a charge) dated July 20, 2012 before this court.
"I have the instruction of the Attorney-General of the Federation to withdraw this information.
"The information has not been served on the defence.
"I urge the court to strike out the charges, “the EFCC counsel added.
In a short ruling, Justice Candide-Johnson ordered as prayed.
"At the instance of the prosecution, the information having been withdrawn is struck out," he said.
