George Uboh Turns 51, Seeks AGF’s Permission To Prosecute Ribadu, Magu, 2 Others Over N1.9tn Fraud
The Chief Executive Officer of PASS, Dr. George Uboh has formally sought permission from the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami to prosecute all Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] chairpersons both past and present.
George Uboh who turned 51 today, Thursday, April 6, is next in line to become the Uboh of Ekuku-Agbor. Mr. Uboh, born in Lagos on April 6, 1966, is from the Royal home of the Uboh Dynasty, the ruling house of Ekuku-Agbor. He attended the prestigious National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, Jos, Plateau State in 2008.
Uboh was appointed by the Federal Government of Nigeria to trace assets trapped in all financial institutions and, in that capacity, traced over N300 Billion or $1 Billion USD in 27 days, an unprecedented achievement.
His new effort to prosecute Ribadu, Waziri, Lamorde, Magu and Access Bank is evidently his birthday gift to Nigeria and Nigerians.
The affected EFCC chairpersons are:
Mallam Nuhu Ribadu,
Mrs. Farida Waziri,
Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde,
The incumbent acting chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu,
As well as Access Bank.
Dr. Uboh is accusing the five mentioned of stealing 1.993 Trillion Naira. The AGF is expected to give Uboh the required fiat to prosecute or state the reason for declining within 15 days.
Meanwhile, if for any reason the AGF fails to accede to the sought-for fiat to enable him to prosecute pursuant to section 383/384 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), 2016, then Uboh will have no option than to approach any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the right to prosecute.
