The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has filed a N1.4billion fraud charge against the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Paul Usoro (SAN), at the Federal High Court in Lagos.
The Nation reports that , Justice Muslim Hassan fixed December 10, 2018 for the EFCC to arraign Usoro.
The anti-graft agency, in a charge marked FHC/418c/18, alleged that Usoro, from Akwa Ibom, converted and laundered the money in connivance with the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.
The charge sheet, signed by EFCC Counsel, Mr. Rotimi Oyedepo, did not list Emmanuel as a defendant.
The EFCC indicated that he is “currently constitutionally immuned against criminal prosecution”.
