Charges brought against late Alex Badeh, a former Chief of Defence Staff who was shot dead by unidentified gunmen have been terminated.

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja terminated the 10-count charge brought against the deceased.

Ruling on the matter, the presiding judge, Okon Abang, also found Iyalikam Nigeria Limited, which is standing trial alongside Badeh, guilty of the charges of corruption filed against it by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).


All properties belonging to Iyalikam Nigeria Limited were also ordered to be forfeited to the Nigerian government.

The judge said: “Having regard to the plea bargain and plea duly taken, I hereby find the defendant Iyalikam Nigeria Limited guilty. The defendant is hereby wound up and this judgement shall be served on the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) for necessary action.

“All properties in line with the 10-count charge are hereby forfeited to the Federal Republic of Nigeria through the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). In view of the fact that the first defendant in the original charge is reported dead, all charges against the first defendant are hereby terminated.”

Before his death, Badeh was standing trial alongside Iyalikam Nigeria Limited on an amended 10-count charge bothering on corruption.
