The Federal High Court has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to remove the name of the Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, Chief Raymond Dokpesi from its watch list.

The order, issued on Monday by Chief Justice John Tsoho of the court’s Abuja Division, stated that no criminal charges or allegations have been leveled against Mr. Dokpesi.

The court ruled that the EFCC’s failure to remove Mr. Dokpesi’s name from the watch list would be a violation of the Court of Appeal’s decision to dismiss the N2.1 billion money-laundering accusations against him.
