Former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Festus Keyamo, has had his suit against former Vice President Atiku Abubakar dismissed by a Federal High Court in Lagos.

Keyamo had sought the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to investigate and prosecute Abubakar over claims by one of his aides that he conspired with ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to defraud the country using “Special Purpose Vehicles”.

Abubakar’s lawyer filed a notice of preliminary objection, seeking dismissal of the suit for being incompetent, lack of locus standi, want of jurisdiction and for non-disclosure of reasonable cause against him.

The EFCC, ICPC and the CCB also challenged the competency of the suit and jurisdiction of the court.

The judge dismissed the suit, describing it as frivolous, vexatious and an abuse of court process.
