The Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee, EFCC, has, Tuesday, arraigned the previous secretary to the federal government of the federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal earlier than a Federal Excessive courtroom in Abuja over his use of an organization mentioned to be owned by him to take away what he had described as ‘invasive grass” at the price of over N272 million.
Recall that on January 30th, after over two years since he was eliminated, the federal authorities pressed prices in opposition to Lawal over the alleged fraud.
President Muhammad Buhari, had on October 2017, suspended Lawal over the allegation. This was after a panel, headed by the vp, Yemi Osinbajo, had submitted its report after investigating the alleged fraud and indicting the previous SGF.
In the meantime, at his arraignment, the EFCC pressed a10-count cost in opposition to the previous SGF bordering on alleged conspiracy and fraudulent acquisition of property.
Nevertheless, Lawal pleaded not responsible to the 10 rely prices.
