The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday re-arraigned a former Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Administrative Secretary, Mr Christian Nwosu for allegedly accepting gratification from former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

He was arraigned with Tijani Bashir, as well as Alison-Madueke (still at large) and Yisa Adedoyin, who was earlier convicted when he pleaded guilty.

Nwosu had earlier pleaded guilty to receiving N30 million bribe from Alison-Madueke to rig the 2015 general election, but later changed plea from guilty to not guilty. They were alleged to have conspired together to directly take possession of N264,880,000 which they reasonably ought to have known formed part of an unlawful act, which is gratification.

Bashir was accused of indirectly taking possession of and retaining N164,880,000 which he reasonably ought to have known forms part of gratification. Bashir was also charged with indirectly retaining N30 million, being part of the proceeds of an unlawful act: criminal misappropriation as he indirectly concealed the N30 million.

Ruling, Justice Mohammed Idris held that EFCC was at liberty to amend its charge at any time before judgement.
After the re-arraignment, he allowed the defendants to remain on bail earlier granted them. The judge thereafter adjourned until March 29 for adoption of written addresses in the no-case submission of the accused persons.
