Appointed APC chieftain acquitted of charges brought by FG

Posted by

An APC chieftain in Rivers State, Fubara Ohaka, was released and cleared by a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt on allegations brought against him by the federal government.

The state’s Deputy Chairman of Youth Movement, Ohaka, has been on trial since 2022 for a variety of charges brought against him by the federal government’s Department of State Services (DSS), including conspiracy, six counts of terrorism, dealings in illegal refining of products without a license, and illegal oil bunkering.

Justice Stephen Dalyop-Pam, who presided over the trial, handed down a verdict in which he found that the government had not presented sufficient evidence to support its allegations against the defendant.

After hearing the defense’s “no case” motion, Justice Dalyop-Pam discharged and acquitted the prisoner.

As part of a coordinated operation in 2022, DSS agents stormed Ohaka’s home in Port Harcourt, climbed over his fence to his bedroom, and abducted him.

It took months for his friends and neighbors to find out why he was arrested and where he was being held. Eventually, they learned about the legal struggle that went in his favor.
