The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the appeal by former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi against the decision by Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike to set up a seven-man panel to probe his eight year tenure as Governor.

The apex court held that Amaechi’s appeal was without merit and awarded N1million cost against him.

The panel was to probe some transactions estimated at about N96billion carried out by Rivers State Government under Amaechi.

The Rivers State claimed Amaechi’s administration fraudulently sold some assets belonging to the State.
