The Rivers State Government has withdrawn the $498,000 money laundering case against former Federal lawmaker Hon. Chinyere Igwe.
Counsel to the state government made this known in a statement on Tuesday.
Igwe, who represented Port Harcourt Federal Constituency 2 was arrested with the said sum by the police on the eve of the Presidential and National Assembly election in Port Harcourt.
He had a frosty relationship with the then governor of Rivers State, Chief, Nyesom Wike following his support for the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
