EFCC arraigns Fani-Kayode today over $2.1bn arms scam

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission will on Thursday (today) arraign a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, for allegedly receiving N26m from the Office of the National Security Adviser.

Some fresh money laundering charges were last month filed against Fani-Kayode by the EFCC before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

Fani-Kayode is the sole defendant in the fresh charges numbered, FHC/ABJ/CR/140/2016, before Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The EFCC in the fresh case filed five counts in which it accused the defendant of diverting N26m allegedly received from the ONSA while Sambo Dasuki was in office.

The anti-graft agency also accused him of handling the said N26m without going through financial institution as required under the Money Laundering Act.

The embattled former minister is already facing 17 counts of money laundering before the Lagos Division of the court, along with a former Finance Minister, Nenadi Usman; Danjuma Yusuf and a firm, Joint Trust Dimension Nig. Ltd.

They were charged with unlawful retention, unlawful use and unlawful payment of money to the tune of N4.9bn.
