NIGERIA: Court Strikes out Doyin Abiola’s Name from Fraud Case

The wife of the late business mogul, Chief MKO Abiola, Dr. Doyin Abiola, Tuesday said her name had been struck out from the fraud case as a former non-executive Chairman of Integrated Microfinance Bank (IMFB).
 
She said the media onslaught still being unleashed on her should stop.
A statement by her lawyer, Mr. Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) and made available to THISDAY read: “Charge no: FHC/L/210C/2013 has been widely reported and an unprecedented media onslaught had been unleashed on our client in relation to the charge vis-à-vis her activity as the erstwhile former non-executive Chairman of Integrated Microfinance Bank (IMFB).
 
“We wish to state that for cogent and very compelling reasons our client’s name was struck out from the charge on February 10, 2014 by Justice Abang of the Federal High Court in Lagos.
“It is our hope that the foregoing information will also receive as much publicity in the print and viral media as did the initial uninformed and underserved criminal imputation on the person of our client.”
