By Dirisu Yakubu, ABUJA
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has expressed his joy and solidarity over the acquittal of media mogul, Raymond Dokpesi, by the Federal Court of Appeal in connection with the alleged N2.1 billion money laundering charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in relations to arms scandal linked to former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki.
In a statement signed by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, Atiku said he was elated with the outcome of the trial saying it revealed the truth about the lopsided nature of the anti-corruption policy under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari.
