Dariye’s Trial: Defence Backtracks, Seeks No-Case Submission

The trial of a former governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, who is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on charges bordering on money laundering and diversion of funds, witnessed a turn of events on June 10, 2016 as the defence counsel, G. S. Pwul, SAN, rather than open its defence, told the court that "we intend to raise a no-case submission".

Dariye is being prosecuted by the EFCC, at a Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High Court, Gudu, Abuja, presided over by Justice Adebukola Banjoko.

He is alleged to have siphoned the state’s ecological fund to the tune of N1.16 billion.
