Real Reason why Jos Agi San is being persecuted by the federal High Court
“Jos Agi San statement, Drop down” 👇 👇 👇
|The High Court has since cleared me and the Court of Appeal has also affirmed. The pertinent question is: Do Joe Agi, SAN not deserve National Honours for exposing such monumental national fraud? Indeed, every Nigerian has taken benefit of fight against corruption by the billions of Naira released to states and local government through the Paris Club Refund which I fought for. $30,000 paid to Justice Onnoghen account — in Standard Charged Bank.
I, Joe Agi, SAN have been acquainted with Justice Onnoghen, JSC in our days as Lawyers in Calabar, Cross Rivers State from the 1980s’ before he was appointed a High Court Judge.
In the year 2009, I brought to his knowledge that he can open a domiciliary account instead of travelling with cash from Nigeria to abroad on seminars, holidays, conferences or medical trips.
My Lord Justice Onnoghen said he had no idea since opening of foreign account was forbidden for Public Officers.
I informed him that domiciliary account is not a foreign bank account as it is opened and operated within the local banks in Nigeria It was on this note that I went to my banker Standard Chartered Bank and obtained Account Opening Forms for him as a friend and Senior Brother.
He completed the Forms and I refereed him. He gave me $30,000 been left over of his allowances for overseas seminars, holidays, conferences or medical trips to deposit for him as the first deposit.
This I did in 2009 i.e 10 years ago. After that he operated the account himself without me paying even a cent into that account till date. Now 10 years after, I am again being vilified and accused of giving Justice Onnoghen bribe.
If I may ask; bribe for which case? In the Supreme Court panel they sit in 5 or 7 persons, was the $30,000 for the 5 or 7 Justices? And for which case?
This is another huge joke aimed at vilifying my person by the same cabal who are hell bent on tarnishing my image as an aftermath of the exposure of the Paris Club fraud.
Is it a crime for Judges to have friends or acquaintances? I challenge the Attorney General Malami, SAN and the EFCC to come forward with their proof that the $30,000 Onnoghen sent me to deposit for him 10 years ago was as a result of bribery.
I challenge them to come out openly on the real reason why they are out to tarnish my image.
They should be bold enough to open up rather than hiding under the guise of fight against corruption as a smokescreen to lunch a smear campaign against my person.
