EFCC Files Fresh Seven Count Charges Against Ex-AGF, Mohammed Adoke




The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed a fresh seven-count charge against a former Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr Mohammed Adoke, over money laundering allegations amounting to about N400 million.

Naija News understands that Adoke was earlier arraigned alongside an Abuja-based businessman, Mr Aliyu Abubakar, before Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja on June 17, 2020, on allegations of money laundering.

As the trial resumed, the prosecutor, Bala Sanga, informed the court of an amended charge he filed on July 29 which was served on all the defendants.

Justice Ekwo frowned at the late filing of the amended charge and moved to adjourn the trial till Tuesday on the ground that he is yet to sight the amended charges.

The EFCC, in the former seven counts, alleged that Adoke and Abubakar committed the money laundering offences totalling over N400 million in Abuja in September 2013.
