Previous Aviation clergyman and previous representative of the PDP 2015 presidential battle, Femi Fani-Kayode and a previous Finance serve, Nenadi Usman were today re-charged before Justice Ridwan Aikawa of the Federal High Court in Lagos.
The case was reassigned to Justice Aikawa after FFK dissented that the case is pulled back from the underlying directing judge, Justice Muslim Hassan. In the 17 number charge documented under the steady gaze of the court by EFCC, FFK is asserted to have contrived with the others including Nenadi Usman and two others, to specifically and in a roundabout way, hold different holes of cash while executing the PDP battle extend between January eighth and March 25th, 2015. As indicated by EFCC, the cash spent is accepted to continue from misrepresentation.
In one of the checks, the respondents were blamed for planning among themselves to “in a roundabout way hold the whole of N1,500, 000,000.00 which aggregate you sensibly should have known structures some portion of the returns of an unlawful demonstration to mind: taking.” They are likewise asserted have held 300m, N400m and N800m amid the battles. The EFCC says all the cash held are accepted to continue from criminal acts.
At the point when the charges were perused to them at the beginning of today, they all argued not blameworthy to the wrongdoing. Equity Aikawa then suspended the case to June sixth and ninth for the beginning of trial and for the judge to administer on FFK’s application for the matter to be exchanged to Abuja.
