Publish charges against ex-bank chiefs, Diezani, CSOs tell EFCC

By Agency Reporter


A coalition of society organisations has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to publish the criminal charges against a former Petroleum Minister Diezani Allison – Madueke and other persons indicted for money laundering.

Others indicted are former NNPC and commercial banks officials Ben Otti, Nnamdi Okonkwo, Stanley Lawson, Lanre Adesanya and Dauda Lawal.

The Northern Youths in Defence of Democracy and Justice (NYDDJ) disclosed this in a statement signed by its convener Abba Suleiman after an emergency meeting in Abuja on Sunday.

EFCC spokesperson Wilson Uwajuren recently denied in a statement that the commission had dropped the criminal charge against Diezani and others.

He said the EFCC took a prosecutorial decision to split the initial 14-count charge to enable separate arraignment of the defendants.

The CSOs, however, said if the charges are still in place, the anti-graft agency should be bold enough to publish the charge sheet.
