The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has charged Dr. Blessed Fiberesima, the ex-Chief Physician to previous President Goodluck Jonathan. 

The EFCC said in an announcement by its representative, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, that Fiberesima, who is likewise a previous Chief Executive Officer, State House Medical Center, was charged for an affirmed extortion to the tune of N258.9m.

The doctor was arraigned before Justice Peter Affen of the Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja on six counts bordering on money Laundering.

Fiberesima, was affirmed to have mishandled his position as the central doctor to the President in 2012 in granting contract to an organization where he has interests.

According to the anti-graft agency, the defendant, who also parades himself as Fortunate David and David Thank God Fiberesima, was initially meant to be arraigned by the EFCC on March 7, when the trial judge observed that, “all charges are under the ICPC Act not that of the EFCC” and consequently ordered that the charge be either amended or transferred to the appropriate authority for prosecution.
