Nwobike Convicted for Perversion of Justice

By Akinwale Akintunde
A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja has convicted a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Dr. Joseph Nwobike, over his involvement in the perversion of justice.

Justice Raliat Adebiyi while delivering judgment Monday in the criminal charge made against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) found the embattled SAN guilty of perversion of justice.

Nwobike was first arraigned on a five-count charge on March 9, 2016.

The EFCC later amended the charges on two different occasions, each time leading to the re-arraignment of Adebiyi.
