Alleged $1m stash: No money was found in my house, says Badeh
The counsel to former Air Chief Marshal Alex S. Badeh (rtd), Samuel O. Zibri, SAN, has refuted the media reports that the sum of $1,000,000 cash was recovered in the house of his client.
A statement issued yesterday by Zibri, on behalf of Badeh, said: 'The said 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. A. Badeh (rtd).
'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 EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) official to substantiate his claim.
'The trial has commenced and as a law-abiding citizen, our client will defend himself in accordance with the law.' The Nation
