    The Constitution of Nigeria (as amended 1999) provides avenue to investigate impeach, and or prosecute, all covered persons in Section 308.

    The Jurisdiction to do such investigations, and prosecutions are lodged, and preserved by the Legislature, for high crimes and misdemeanors. It is with good reason, NOT to be be handled by the Courts, the Executive branch, the police, the military and so forth; ONLY by the Legislators. Yes, the legislators have subpoena powers, to investigate any allegations against any of the covered persons of the section, supra, and to remove them from office if found guilty by the Senate, both at Federal, and state levels, and get this, open them for prosecution by the executive or the Courts, ONLY after the Legislatures are done with the initial investigation, and prosecution, plus removed from office.

    So, it’s false to say “If one argues that the Federal High Court order authorising the freezing of Governor Fayose’s bank accounts violates section 308 of the Constitution, one is in essence positing that no financial crime investigation involving a bank account can be undertaken against a person holding the office of the President, Vice-President, Governor or Deputy Governor”. The Legislature can, and should investigate any abuse of office in that scenario; the articles of impeachment should follow any such finding by the ethics committee, or committee of the whole…
