A Magistrate Court 3 sitting in Ebrumede in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State has struck out charges levelled against four defendants by a former Minister of Education (State), Kenneth Gbagi.

The four defendants who were discharged and acquitted include, Gloria Oguzie(f), Victor Ephraim(m), Roselyn Okiemute (f) and Achibong Precious (f).

They were accused by Gbagi of allegedly stealing from Signatious Hotel & Suites owned by him.

The defendants were dragged before the Court on a four count charge which was filed by the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Hafiz Inuwa.

Counsel to the defendant, Kunle Edun, confirmed this in a statement signed and made available to newsmen.

The legal practitioner also commended the court for serving justice in the matter.

According to him, the prosecutor in the matter made an oral application to withdraw the charge on the ground that it was before the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, and that he was instructed to withdraw the charge after due investigation of the allegations as well as the inability of the nominal complainant, Gbagi to report to the Police to prepare for trial.
