The Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday admitted as exhibit the confessional statement made by a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa, who is being prosecuted for an alleged fraud of N5.1bn.

Justice Mohammed Idris, in a ruling on Monday, said he found that Dudafa was not coerced to make the confessional statement while in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission but that he voluntarily made the confessional statement after being duly cautioned.
