BREAKING: NBA President—Usoro Arrives Court For Arraignment
The President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Paul Usoro (SAN), has arrived the Federal High Court in Lagos for his scheduled arraignment on money laundering charges.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission accused Usoro of converting and laundering a sum of N1.4 billion belonging to the Akwa Ibom State Government.
According to our correspondent, it was actually on Friday last week that Mr. Usoro was to come to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] to pick up the charge sheet.
He said he was coming and never did. He couldn’t even send his junior to EFCC’s office to pick it up.
He avoided it meaning by now he may not have prepared his bail application.
On Friday when EFCC called him again towards evening that they were waiting for him all day he said he will be in court today and pick it up.
