The defendants were never arraigned. At the court session on Tuesday, counsel representing the attorney-general of the federation (AGF) applied to withdraw the charges.

The AGF took over the case from the office of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel on Recovery of Public Property (SPIP) which originally instituted the case against the defendants.

The AGF said he found out that there was no basis for the charges filed against Pinnick and other executive members of the NFF.

Making his submission, Mohammed Katu, counsel to the defendants, said: “we asked that since the prosecution has applied to withdraw the charges, the defendants should be acquitted.”
