Nigeria ex-EFCC chief, top lawmaker indicted for alleged graft
Two top figures in Nigeria are being indicted for allegedly being involved in corrupt activities running into tens of millions of Naira.
An Abuja High Court on Thursday granted the request of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arraign Herman Hembe, the former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Capital Market and Other Financial Institutions.
The Judge said the application to prefer a criminal charge against the two persons had “merit”.
Justice Abubakar Umar also granted permission to the EFCC to arraign the former Vice Chairman of the committee, Chris Azubogu over corruption charges.
The EFCC has filed an application for leave to prefer a two-count criminal charge against the duo.
