Courts remand Nyako, Ohakim, Lamido knows fate tomorrow

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered that a former Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako, and his son be remanded in custody till Friday when their bail application will be heard.

The former governor and his son, Abdul-aziz, a senator and others were today arraigned before Justice Evoh Chukwu by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged money laundering.

Their bail application is to be heard on Friday following an application by the ex-governor’s counsel, Kanu Agabi (SAN) for time to familiarise himself with the charges.

Former Governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim, who was arraigned before Justice Adeniyi Ademola of another Federal High Court, also in Abuja was remanded till tomorrow (Thursday) for hearing of his bail application.

Ohakim, who was arrested Tuesday evening, is facing trial on three counts of money laundering. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.
