Sokoto Court Orders EFCC To Arraign Ex-Minister Shagari Over ‘$115m Shared By Diezani’

The Federal High Court in Sokoto, Sokoto State, has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arraign Mukhtar Shehu Shagari, former Minister of Water Resources and four others for N500million fraud.

The anti-graft commission is to arraign Mukhtar Shehu Shagari, Ibrahim Gidado, Nasiru Dalhatu, Ibrahim Milgoma and Abdullahi Mohammed Wali on charges ranging from conspiracy to money laundering in relation to the case against Diezani Alison-Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum Resources.

The defendants are alleged to have participated in the sharing of the $115million largesse from former Minister of Petroleum Resources intended to influence the outcome of the 2015 presidential election — an action deemed a contravention of section 1(a) of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act. The EFCC has been in court with Diezani since the beginning of the Buhari administration.
