FORMER Plateau State Governor Jonah Jang will be arraigned today before a Jos, Plateau State High Court by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) for alleged N6.3 billion fraud.
The senator representing Plateau North, who has been held in EFCC custody since last week, will be moved by EFCC from Abuja to Jos for the arraignment.
The Nation gathered in Jos that Jang will be arraigned before Justice Daniel Longji on the 12 counts filed against him by the EFCC.
The EFCC had preferred 12 charges against him over an alleged fraud amounting to about N6.3 billion.
The ex-governor allegedly embezzled some special funds released to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria. He was said to have done so two months to the end of his tenure as governor in 2015.
A team of lawyers acting for the release of the senator had last week filed a motion on notice before a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Abuja in an attempt to enforce his release on bail.
The team of lawyers comprising of Christopher Eichie, Yakubu Philemon and Kola Oseni prayed that the former governor be granted bail on health ground, claiming that the suspect is diabetic.
Apart from asking for his unconditional bail, the legal team is asking the court to order the EFCC to pay Jang N500 million as damages for his detention without trial and to offer him public apology in two national newspapers.
