Iyalaje Oodua

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos today struck out the N32.6illion charge preferred against Iyalaje Oodua,Princess Toyin Kolade.


The presiding Judge Peter Lifu thrown out the charge sequel to a withdrawal application made by the Attorney-General of the Federation AGF.


Counsel from the office of the AGF Pius Akutah applied to withdraw the charge as result of a letter from the nominal complainant Access Bank Plc.


Counsel to Princess Toyin Kolade, Barrister Dele Adesina SAN commended the conduct of the prosecution as been a professional one by withdrawing the charge after objection is been raised.


Counsel to other defendantsDada Awosika SAN also commended the prosecution on the withdrawal but he urged the court to dismissed the charge and acquit the defendants because the charge flows from a business transaction.


However, justice Lifu in his ruling said that since the case was not heard on its merit but merely withdrawn before trial commenced, the appropriate other to make is to strike it out.
