Court set to arraign Adoke


The Gwagwalada Division of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, is set for the arraignment of the immediate past Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had earlier filed 12 charges against Mr Adoke, Aliyu Abubakar, Rasky Gbinigie, as well as Malabu Oil and Gas Limited.

Others listed on the charge sheet are Nigeria Agip Exploration Limited, Shell Nigeria Ultra Deep Limited, and Shell Nigeria Exploration Production Company Limited.

The charges were filed against the former minister for the role he allegedly played in the controversial Oil Prospecting Licence (OPL) 245, otherwise known as Malabu oil scam.
