A Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out one of the charges brought against the alleged architect of the 2010 Independence Day bombing, Charles Okah, Premium Times.
Justice Gabriel Kolawole said the charges were dismissed because the evidence against him was insufficient to prove the case of treason.
Justice Kolawole said the evidence failed to prove that Jonathan was rushed out of the eagle square, venue of the 50th-anniversary celebration of Nigeria’s independence.
He also said the evidence cited by the prosecution failed to prove that governors who attended a meeting on March 15, 2010, in Warri, Delta State, where another blast occurred, were also intimidated.
However, Justice Kolawole dismissed a no-case submission filed by Okah and other defendants.
Okah now faces only terrorism charge.
