BREAKING: EFCC files fraud charges against Babachir, Oke, wife

Ade Adesomoju, Abuja

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has filed fraud charges against the immediate-past Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal; a former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayodele Oke, and his wife, Mrs. Folashade Oke.

The PUNCH gathered that the anti-graft agency on Wednesday filed 10 counts against Lawal and five others, including his company, Rholavision Engieneering Ltd, before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja.

It filed four counts against Oke and his wife, Folashade, before the Federal High Court, in Lagos.

President Muhammadu Buhari had, in October 2017, 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.

The charges against the duo are coming over 15 months after they were sanctioned by the President.
