Andrew Yakubu, former GMD, NNPC who was arraigned today March 16, 2017 before Justice A R Mohammed of the Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja has been remanded in Kuje prison pending ruling on his bail application. The ruling on his bail application has been fixed on March 21,2017.
Mr. Yakubu is been prosecuted by the EFCC on a six count charge bordering on non disclosure of assets, money laundering and advance fee fraud.
Recall that Mr. Adamu Dan Musa, the Commission’s head of operations in Kano Zonal Office, led a team that recovered over $9.8million from the residence of the former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Andrew in Kaduna based on whistle blower policy the federal government brought.
However, days later Andrew filed a petition before a Federal High Court in Kano, urging it to order the Federal Government to return the money valued at N3billion to him.
