The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office, has arraigned one Olabisi Sulaimon Akanbi before Justice Rilwan Aikawa of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos on a four-count charge bordering on money laundering and obtaining under false pretence to the tune of N151,593,000.

The defendant was arraigned alongside his companies – Labo Entertainment, Labo Autos Limited, Labo Group of Companies Limited and Facebuk Magazine Limited.

One of the counts reads:
“That you, Olabisi Sulaiman Akanbi (a.k.a. Labo), Labo Entertainment Limited, Labo Auto Limited, Labo Group of Companies, Facebuk Magazine Limited, and one Olaoluwa Wahab Akanbi, a.k.a.

The defendant pleaded “not guilty” to the charge preferred against him.

In view of his plea, counsel for the EFCC, M.K. Hussain, asked the court for a trial date and also prayed that the defendant be remanded in prison.

Counsel to the defendant, Ifedayo Adedipe, SAN, asked the court if he could move an oral application for bail on behalf of his client and serve the prosecution before the end of the day.

Adedipe further prayed the court for a short date to hear the bail application, stressing that his client was ill and was served with the charge on his sickbed on Friday, May 24, 2019.
