Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja, has threatened to strike out a N2.9 billion money laundering criminal charge brought against the former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha by the Federal Government.


The judge threatened to throw out the charge yesterday, following the inability of the Federal Government to serve the charges on Okorocha as required by law.


For the second time, the Federal Government, through its counsel, Cosmos Ugwu, told the court that he has not been able to see Okorocha and serve him with the charges and subsequently applied for another adjournment to enable him serve the court papers on the former governor.


In a short ruling, the judge granted the request for the second adjournment and warned the governments lawyer to demonstrate seriousness or else, the case would be struck out.
Justice Ekwo subsequently fixed May 30 to serve the Senator.
