The Supreme Court on Friday ordered the prosecution of former Nigerian Senate President, Adolphus Wabara, accused of receiving a N55 million bribe at a Federal High Court; charges earlier quashed by an Appeal court’s ruling.
The case reached the Supreme Court after the allegations were dismissed by the Court of Appeal in a prolonged trial lasting more than seven years.
In a unanimous judgement read by lead judge, Musa Muhammad, on Friday, the apex court set aside the judgement of the Court of Appeal.
Mr. Wabara is accused of receiving N55 million from a former Minister of Education, Fabian Osuji, to pass the ministry’s budget in 2005.
The former senate president denied the charges brought against him by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.
Mr. Wabara was charged alongside four others.
