Alleged money laundering: EFCC arraigns Atiku’s son-in-law, lawyer

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday arraigned former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s son-in-law, Abdullahi Babalele.

He was arraigned at the Federal High Court in Lagos for allegedly laundering $140,000 during the general elections.

Also arraigned separately was Atiku’s lawyer, Uyiekpen Osagie-Giwa, for allegedly laundering $2million.

The defendants pleaded not guilty before Justice Nicholas Oweibo.

The judge ordered their remand in EFCC’s custody pending the hearing of their bail applications on Thursday.
