EFCC arraigns Obadina

The EFCC arraigned Obadina on Friday for
receiving over N2.4 billion from a former
National Security Adviser, retired Col.
Sambo Dasuki, for electricity contracts that
were never executed.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to
all eight counts.
The prosecuting counsel, Mr Peters Aso, urged
the court to remand the defendant in prison
custody and order accelerated hearing of the
case.
Aso said that even though bail was at the
discretion of the court, the proof of evidence
accompanying the charges against Obadina,
showed that he was not entitled to bail.
“The defendant received N2.4 billion out of
which $2.6 million has been taken abroad and
his passport is still in his custody. And so, if
granted bail, he is a flight risk because he will
jet off to enjoy that money already abroad,’’
Aso said.
The prosecutor said that although they had
recovered N70 million from the defendant,
rather than cooperate, he was frustrating the
investigation.
He urged the court to discountenance the
exhibits attached to the defendant’s bail
application, saying they were public documents
and only certified true copies would be
accepted by the court.
Defence counsel Chris Uche (SAN) notified the
court that the defendant had been in EFCC’s
custody for over one month even though he
had been granted administrative bail.
Uche urged the court to grant his client bail,
saying that the charge preferred against him
was one in which bail could be granted. He also
noted that the defendant had demonstrated,
through the exhibits he attached to his
affidavit, that he would be available to attend
his trial if granted bail.
He appealed that bail should be granted in
liberal terms, adding that the N70 million
recovered by the EFCC could be used as bond.
The judge, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, said that
the court could put in place measures that
would ensure that the defendant was not a
flight risk when granted bail.
Dimgba also said that the court would put in
place measures to ensure that he appeared for
his trial.
Dimgba adjourned ruling on the bail
application till July 18 and ordered the
remand of the defendant in Kuje prison.
