In a judgment on Tuesday, following a suit marked: FCT/HC/CV2541/2020, filed by Omale, his wife and the church, Justice Yusuf Halilu exonerated Magu of money laundering.

During the investigation of Magu by the Justice Isa Salami-led presidential investigation panel, it was alleged that an investigation by the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit, revealed that Magu paid N573million into Omale’s church’s account with which property was allegedly bought in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

However, in his verdict, Justice Halilu noted that the evidence before his court showed that Omale’s bank admitted error in its report to the NFIU, of entries in Divine Hand of God Prophetic Ministry’s account.
