Adeyemi Ikuforiji, ex-Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly has dragged the EFCC to the Supreme Court following a Court of Appeal's order of a fresh trial over N500 million money laundering charges.

According to a report by Premium Times, Ikuforiji and his former aide, Olabode Atoyebi have challenged the Court of Appeal ruling at the Supreme Court.

In a notice of appeal filed before the Lagos Division of the Appeal Court, Ikuforiji and Atoyebi, prayed the Supreme court to set aside the ruling of the Appeal Court.

Ikuforiji and Atoyebi reportedly described the court’s decisions as unreasonable, unwarranted, and not supported by the evidence and material on record.

They further urged the Supreme Court to uphold their no-case submission as upheld by a Lagos Division of the Federal High Court in 2014, and dismiss the Appeal court’s decision.
