EFCC wanted list: Benedicts Peter’s name removed

Benedicts Peters.

Following an order by a Federal  High Court sitting in Abuja, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has removed the Executive Vice Chairman of Aiteo Group, Benedict Peter’s name, from its list of wanted persons.

The action according to Vanguard, was in compliance with the judgment handed down in March 2018, by Justice O.A. Musa of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

Justice Musa had ordered that Peters’ name be taken down from the anti-graft agency’s website, describing the process leading to his declaration as ‘wanted’ by EFCC as unconstitutional.

The EFCC in March 2017 declared Peters wanted on its website. However, in response to suit, FCT/HC/CV/23/2017, the court reached the conclusion that Peters had never been charged with, nor tried for any criminal offence in any court of law.
