Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke of a Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday, quashed a criminal charge preferred against a former Chief of Air Staff, Adesola Amosu, and two others over N21. 5 billion money laundering.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had re-arraigned the defendants , on an amended 13-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N21.5billion.

Justice Aneke on Tuesday, upheld a preliminary objection by defence counsel, challenging the jurisdiction of the court to entertain the case on the grounds that the defendants were serving officers of the military at the time

Defence counsel had argued that the defendants were therefore, only subject to trial by a court martial, since they were still officers during the period.
