Malabu Oil Scam: EFCC Arrests Adoke On Fresh Charges

The job of Mohammed Adoke (SA), who was the immediate past Attorney-Général of the Federation (AGF), continued on Monday as he was sued by the Economic and Financial Crimen Commission (EFCC) for a fresh seven-count indictment on money-laundering crimes.

Adoke is also charged with Aliyu Abubakar who had paid dollars equal to N300 million to Adoke's account in September 2013 which is in violation of the Money Laundering Act.

In relation to the Malabu Oil scam case, Adoke and Abubakar stand alongside other suspects at the High Court in Gwagwalada, in Abuja.

After a court official read the charges to them, they all pleaded not guilty before Judge Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court's Abuja Division.

In the meantime, prosecutor Bala Sanga called for both accused to be held in EFCC detention pending their bail requests. Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN) and Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) who represented Adoke and Abubakar respectively, told the court about their clients filing individual requests for bail.

In the meantime, Adoke said that the court would have preferred to be held by at the Kuje correctional centre than the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's detention.

His lawyer, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN), who was defending his bail application which was being blocked by EFCC told the court that;
“The first defendant voluntarily returned to the country. There is his statement attached to show that he returned to the country voluntarily,” Ozekhome said.“He did not run away. We have attached an exhibit to show that he went for his Masters’ study abroad.“We have deposed to the affidavit about his health conditions. The prosecution themselves brought him to court from the Federal Medical Centre near Jabib in Abuja, this morning.“We also plead that he be taken to the Kuje Correction Centre, a euphemism for Kuje prison pending when he meets his bail conditions to avoid the mental psychological strictures he goes through in the custody of the EFCC.“My lord, we pray that he be granted bail in liberal and affordable terms and conditions so that he can take care of himself.“The law says, ‘come and stand trial’, it did not say ‘come and sit trial or come and prostate trial’.“My lord, as you can see, the first defendant, who is less than 60, is already bent with age.”
