Court rejects Tompolo’s request to defreeze his account

Tompolo

A Federal High Court sitting in Warri, Delta State yesterday dismissed a fundamental rights enforcement application by Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, challenging the freezing of his accounts and threats of arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Justice E. A Obile upheld the preliminary objection by the EFCC and struck out the matter on the grounds that it cannot sit on appeal over an order made by a Lagos State High Court, and cannot also restrain the EFCC from inviting or prosecuting the applicants.
