EFCC Re-arraigns Suspected Fraudster on Amended Charges

The EFCC on October 22, 2019 re-arraigned Okoroji Chinonso Stanley on four amended charges before Justice Giwa Ogunbanjo of the Federal High Court Abuja. It could be recalled that Stanley was arraigned on June 6, 2019 on four-count charges, bordering on money laundering to the tune of N23,697000 million (Twenty Three Million Six Hundred and Ninety Seven Thousand Naira) only, to which he pleaded not guilty to all. He was later released on bail.

At the resume hearing on Tuesday, the team of the prosecution counsel, led by Chile Okoroma presented four amended charges against the defendant, which it had earlier filed on October 11, and urged the court to adopt the new charges and for the defendant to be re-arraigned upon the amended charges.
