The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is expected to on Thursday arraign a former Kebbi State governor Usman Saidu Dakingari before a Federal High Court, Birnin-Kebbi, on a 13-count charge of conspiracy and money laundering.

Dakingari will be arraigned along with Sunday Dogonyaro and Garba Rabiu Kamba for allegedly conniving to collect the sum of 450 million naira as part of the 115 million dollars allegedly shared by the a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Deizani Alison-Madueke for the purpose of influencing the 2015 general election.

The former governor and his co-defendant’s arraignment suffered series of adjournment due to their persistent absence.

On the last adjourned date, Justice Simone Amobeda gave the absentee defendants the last chance to appear before the court and take their pleas otherwise, he would grant the prosecution’s prayers and invoke section 394 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 for the court to issue a bench warrant for their arrest.
