The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday, October 18th, 2018 re-arraigned the trio of Ibrahim Shekarau, former governor of Kano State; Aminu Bashir Wali and Mansur Ahmed before Justice A.L Allagoa of the Federal High Court sitting in Kano on a 6-count charge of Conspiracy and Money Laundering to the tune of N950,000,000 (Nine Hundred and Fifty Million Naira Only). The defendants allegedly collected the sum of N950,000,000, part of the $115,000,000 (One Hundred and Fifteen Million Dollars) allegedly distributed by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Deizani Allison Madueke for the purpose of influencing the outcome of the 2015 general election. It was further alleged that the said money was shared among the PDP Chieftains without going through a financial institution, in violation of provisions of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act. All the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to them. Prosecution counsel Jonson Ojogbane requested a date for trial in view of the plea of the defendants. The case was subsequently adjourned to 19th, 20th and 21st of November, 2018 for the commencement of trial.
