At last, EFCC arraigns former SGF, court remands him in cell

After what looks like eternity in waiting for the federal government to act, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Tuesday, dragged the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr. Babachir Lawal before a High Court.
Lawal was arraigned before an FCT High court in Abuja, on a 10 count charge bordering on alleged conspiracy and fraudulent acquisition of property.
He is better known for the controversial contract of N200 million grass cutting of an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp given to a company in which he has a vested interest.
The former SGF who was sacked by President Buhari in October 2017, pleaded not guilty to the 10 count charges brought against him by the Federal Government.
Babachir among other things has been accused of using his position as Chairman of the Presidential Initiative for the North East PINE, misappropriated funds meant for the rehabilitation of IDPs and also for allegedly diverting some of the funds meant for PINE to his personal company.
When the charges were read to him, the accused pleaded not guilty.
The High ordered that Lawal be remanded in the EFFC’s custody pending determination of his bail application slated for tomorrow Wednesday, February 13th.
