Court of Appeal discharged the Fmr Governor over misappropriation of over 11 billion naira during his term as Governor of Oyo State.
In a unanimous decision after reviewing the Judgement of the trial court and the setting aside of the case against The Former Governor, the three Justices of the Appellate court noted that the prosecution failed to establish a prima facie case against Mr Akala.
In an Interview outside the court, counsel to the appellant ‘Mr Abiodun Ogunjimi’ stated that Justice did a Marvelous Job in coming to an end because the case had started since 2012, roughly 11 years ago.
“It comes to an end today… It first started at the High Court of Justice, Ibadan so it’s thanksgiving that all ended well” – Mr Abiodun Ogunjimi added.
Mr Akala in an interview had this to say; “I will rely on the Judiciary as the last hope for the common man and we thank God for everything”.
