Amosu Objects As EFCC Tenders Incriminating Documents
Former Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (Rtd) yesterday objected to a move by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to tender some bank documents that showed how connived with some others to defraud the Nigeria Air Force (NAF). At the resumed trial, counsel for the commission, Rotimi Oyedepo, sought the court's leave to call on Tosin Owobo, an operative of the EFCC who is also a witness in the ongoing trial, to tender some letters obtained during investigations.
Owobo revealed that he obtained some documents from Heritage Bank, First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB), Skye Bank, United Bank for Africa (UBA), Fidelity, Keystone and Diamond Bank, that showed details of how monies were moved by companies linked to the former Chief of Air Staff.
Mr. Oyedepo then asked to tender one of the letters from FCMB as evidence before the court Bolaji Ayorinde, counsel to Amosu, objected. He claimed that the letter cannot be taken as evidence having been certified by EFCC and signed by the witness who is not the maker of the letter.
