I was told Buhari’s lawyer gave Justice Ademola N500,000 — Witness


A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Joe Agi, who is being prosecuted along with Justice Adeniyi Ademola of a Federal High Court, has told the Department of State Services that a President Muhammadu Buhari’s lawyer paid N500,000 to the judge in 2015.

Among the 18 counts preferred against the defendants, was an allegation that on January 5, 2015, in his capacity as a public servant, Justice Ademola “corruptly received” from Agi a BMW Saloon 320i valued at N8.5m through his son, Ademide Ademola, as gratification in the exercise of his official functions as a judge.

On the allegation that the N30m paid to the judge’s wife was probably a bribe for an order of garnishee nisi granted in favour of Agi’s clients for the enforcement of a $3.2bn judgment earlier given by the judge, Adepoju confirmed that, his “initial view of the matter is based on incomplete knowledge.”
