Malabu: EFCC arraigns Adoke on fresh money laundering charges
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC], on Monday, arraigned the former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke (SAN), on fresh charges bordering on money laundering.
Adoke, Aliyu Abubakar, alongside others, were arraigned at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Gwagwalada, Abuja, in respect of the Malabu Oil scam.
They pleaded not guilty to the fresh seven counts read to them before Justice Binta Nyako at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.
EFCC alleged that the defendants, about September 2013, made payments in naira and dollar which equivalent was about N900 million into Adoke’s accounts in violation of various provisions of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act.
Adoke’s bail application, meanwhile, is already being argued by another senior member of his defence team, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN).
