The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to remove the founder of the African Independent Television AIT, Chief Raymond Dokpesi from its watch list.

Justice TSOHO held that there was no justification for the anti-graft agency to continue to keep Dokpesi on the watchlist since there is no criminal charges or allegations pending against him.

Ruling in an application filed and argued by his counsel, Senior advocate of Nigeria Kanu Agabi, the Chief Judge said that keeping Dokpesi on the watch list will amount to disobedience to a court judgment which in April this year quashed the two point one billion naira money laundering charges against him.
