Former Governor of Taraba State, Jolly Nyame who is being prosecuted by the EFCC for charges of money laundering and embezzlement to the tune of N1.6 Billion at the FCT High Court today, February 14, 2017, lost his no-case submission before Justice Adebukola Banjoko.
Jolly Nyame was governor of Taraba state from 29 May 1999 to 29 May 2007. The prosecution had on November 22, 2016 closed its case against Nyame after presenting 14 witnesses.The trial, however, took a surprising turn on the same day, as the defence told the court that it intended to file a “no case” submission, as it believed that there was no prima facie case established against Nyame.
