Lawyer Joe Agi SAN exposed and tenaciously fought for the refund of the illegal deductions of the sum of $3.18 Billion corruptly deducted from the accounts of Local Government in Nigeria at the Federal High Court in Suit No.FHC/ABJ/CS/130/2013.
The Federal Government who fraudulently deducted the money has returned part of it the local governments following Judgment against it in the case led by myself (Joe Agi, SAN).
But shockingly, instead of investigating and prosecuting those who stole the money, the Government acting through its agents and agencies such as Abubakar Malami, SANThe Attorney-General of the Federation Minister and of Justice and
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) unjustifiably framed me up and charged in a trumped up and baseless charges of bribing Justice A. F. A. Ademola, the trial Judge, with N30M and a car to give the Paris Club Refund Judgment.
The charge has since been quashed by the Court and I, Joe Agi, SAN was discharged and acquitted.
Is this not a case of the corruption fighting back? The Federal Government did not even go Appeal against the Judgment as it does not have any case but to bury its flive in shame.
In the intervening period, the Federal Government has reluctantly refunded part of the Paris Club Refund but deliberately failed to mention my name (Joe Agi, SAN) as the hero who exposed Paris Club fraud and secured its refund rather than vilifying me as corrupt and a bribe giver.
