On Thursday, a Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja struck out a criminal charge brought against the Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Amarachi Chyna Iwuanyanwu, over his alleged involvement in a N75 million fraud.

Justice Charles Agbaza in a ruling struck out the charges upon the request of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

The IGP, who filed the charges, however, on Thursday brought a motion on notice to the court requesting that the charges be terminated.

In the motion argued by his counsel, Mr Umoh Inah, the police chief asked the court to throw away the charges in the interest of justice.

The motion was not opposed by Chief Chris Uche (SAN), who stood for the Deputy Speaker.

Agbaza consequently ruled that the charges be immediately terminated.
