Court Rejects Tompolo’s Appeal To Defreeze His Account

Tompolo

A Federal High Court sitting in Warri, Delta State today 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.
