Written by thereachfm on October 25, 2019
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday re-arraigned a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof Maurice Iwu, for an alleged fraud of N1.23bn.
Iwu was re-arraigned on four counts before Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos.
He had earlier been arraigned in August before Justice Chuka Obiozor of the same court.
His re-arraignment on Thursday followed the transfer of the case from Justice Obiozor to Justice Oweibo.
In the charges, the EFCC alleged that Iwu committed the offence in the build-up to the 2015 general elections in which President Muhammadu Buhari defeated then-incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.
He adjourned till November 25, 2019, for the commencement of trial.
