Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday [Mar 4] dismissed an application for bail filed by a former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh. Justice James Tsoho, in a ruling on Friday morning, upheld the objection by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to the effect that Badeh’s detention was on a subsisting court order.

The EFCC told that court that Badeh was initially arrested in relation to money laundering offence for allegedly diverting about N4billion while serving as the Chief of Air Staff in 2013.

The commission stated that it granted Badeh administrative bail, but was on the process of perfecting the bail when it discovered the ex-CDS alleged involvement in another monumental fraud in the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

The EFCC said it consequently moved Badeh to Lagos for investigation into the NIMASA case, obtained an order of remand till March 23 from a Chief Magistrate’s Court in Lagos. It said Badeh’s detention was on the strength of the order of remand by the Lagos Chief Magistrate’s Court.

Badeh, in his application, faulted his detention, arguing that the order for remand was wrongly obtained. He argued that the administrative bail granted him by the EFCC was too onerous to meet.


In May 2014, Nigerian military headed by Air Marshall Alex Badeh said they know where 200 abducted Chibok schoolgirls are - but will not risk 'killing our girls' by using force to rescue them...Almost 2 years after, the abducted girls are still in captivity.


ONE YEAR + 325 DAYS - CHIBOK SCHOOLGIRLS ABDUCTION... 1 YEAR + 325 DAYS Since 276 Chibok School Girls Were Abducted From Their School Hostel By Boko Haram Terrorists. 57 Escaped, NONE has so far been rescued and 219 Girls are still being held In Captivity. It is exactly 280 Days today since President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn-in as Nigeria's President, when he vowed during his inaugural speech to rescue the abducted innocent schoolgirls. It also 690 Days today the Chibok Schoolgirls have spent in Boko Haram's captivity. We hope President Muhammadu Buhari would live up to his promise of rescuing the missing Chibok Girls alive and dealing with Boko Haram issue squarely after so many broken promises from former President Goodluck Jonathan. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’” #BringBackOurGirls #CNNiReport #Humanity #Humanrights #Nigeria #bringbackourgirlsalive #wehavenotforgotten #nevertobeforgotten #neverforgotten #girlchildeducation #girlchildempowerment #empowerment #education #africangirl #africanchild #alashock #alasholuyi #charlesalasholuyi #chibok #chibokgirls #childeducation #believe #miracle #fairness #faith #prayforpeace
