Following Mohammed Bello Adoke arrest by the EFCC in December 2019, after returning from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and emergent detention, the former Attorney General of Nigeria and Minister of Justice will Tuesday face trial on 12-count corruption charges before a Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja.
Channels TV reports that others to join Adoke but as defendants are Aliyu Abubakar, Rasky Gbinigie, as well as Malabu Oil and Gas Limited.
Channels TV also reported that Others listed on the charge sheet are Nigeria Agip Exploration Limited, Shell Nigeria Ultra Deep Limited, and Shell Nigeria Exploration Production Company Limited.
The commission has also filed a separate 7 count-charge before a Federal High Court against Mr Adoke and Mr Abubakar.
EFCC filed the charges at both courts in Abuja, after deciding to prosecute the Adoke for the role he allegedly played in the controversial Oil Prospecting Licence (OPL) 245, otherwise known as Malabu oil scam.
