A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, has dismissed charges against Dr Ikedi Ohakim, a former Governor of Imo State.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo granted an Application by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) to discontinue the charges leveled by one Chinyere Amuchinwa (née Igwegbe) stemming from her allegations against Ohakim relating to making her nude video, intimidation and a N500m land transaction.

Recall that these charges were previously discontinued by the Inspector-General of Police but at some point the AGF took over the matter upon Ms Amuchinwa’s petition.

The IGP had also charged the woman with giving false information to the police against Ohakim.

When the matter came up for hearing on Thursday, February 24, a Lawyer from the office of the AGF made an Application to discontinue the charges, whereupon the Court granted the Application and dismissed the charges against Ohakim.

Ohakim had since this saga started more than two years ago maintained his innocence and accused the woman of blackmailing him.
