Ex-NIA DG Ayodele Oke’s Arraignment By EFCC Fails

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos State, presided over by Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke, has been urged to reschedule the planned arraignment of Ayodele Oke, the sacked Director General (DG) of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), and his wife, Folashade.

The motion was presented on the basis of the failure of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to produce the duo before the court.

Last Wednesday, the commission instituted a four-count charge against the former NIA boss and his wife.

EFCC had intended to arraign the defendants before the judge in connection with the sums of $43,449,947, £27,800 and N23,218,000 (totalling N13billion) removed by the EFCC from Flat 7B, Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos, which was linked to them.
