A lawyer to the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh (retd.), Samuel O. Zibri (SAN), has faulted a report that $1m was found in the former CDS’s house.
The lawyer, in a statement in Abuja, said, “The publication is not only malicious but wicked. It is totally false and smacks of media campaign of calumny against the person of Air Marshal Alex Badeh, (retd,).
“The 10-count charge against our client along with the proof of evidence in the Federal High Court are public documents and can be accessed by the general public.
“There is no such allegation and we challenge the faceless Economic Financial Crimes Commission official to substantiate his claim. The trial has commenced and our client, as a law-abiding citizen, will defend himself in accordance with the law.”
