Fraud: EFCC drags Babachir Lawal, Ayodele Oke to court

Anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dragged a former Secretary to the Government of Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal,  the ex-Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayodele Oke, and his wife, Mrs Folashade Okeand to court over fraud allegations.

Fraud charges were filed against the former Lawal on Wednesday at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The charges against the former SGF are coming over one year after he was sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari, following public outcry.

Similarly, a former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayodele Oke, and his wife, Mrs Folashade Oke were dragged before the Federal High Court in Lagos.

Reports say Lawal and five others, including his company, Rholavision Engineering Ltd are faced with 10 counts, while the Okes are faced with four counts.

It would be recalled that the presidency sacked Lawal and Oke following a report of investigations by a panel headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo into allegations of fraud leveled against them in 2017.
