EFCC re-arraigns Oyo ex-governor, Ladoja
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday re-arraigned a former Governor of Oyo State, Chief Rashidi Ladoja, over alleged N4.7 billion fraud at the Federal High Court, Lagos.
He was re-arraigned alongside Waheed Akanbi.
The EFCC claimed that Ladoja and Akanbi committed the offence sometime in 2007.
The charge was filed against them in 2008 and they were first arraigned before Justice A.R. Mohammed eight years ago.
Their re-arraignment before Justice Mohammed Idris followed the dismissal of their interlocutory appeal against the charges which went all the way to the Supreme Court over a period of seven years.
The eight counts pressed against them by the EFCC bordered on money laundering and unlawful conversion of funds belonging to Oyo State to their own.
