Femi Fani-Kayode

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday re-arraigned a former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode at a Federal High Court in Lagos on an amended 17-count charge of alleged laundering of N4.6 billion.

Fani-Kayode is standing trial alongside a former Minister of State for Finance, Nenandi Usman; a former Chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), Yusuf Danjuma, and a firm, Jointrust Dimensions Nigeria Limited.

The defendants were formerly on trial for the alleged charges before the former trial judge, Justice Mohammed Aikawa.

They pleaded not guilty and were granted bail, following which trial began.

But proceedings were stalled when the Justice Aikawa was transferred out of the Lagos Division.

The case was consequently assigned to a new judge, Justice Daniel Osaigor, and proceedings started de novo (anew).
