The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday, arraigned Babachir Lawal, the former Secretary to the Government of Federation (SGF), before a Federal High Court in Abuja for offences bordering on conspiracy and fraud.

Lawal, who appeared in court in a grey kaftan, is facing a 10-count charge of conspiracy levelled against him and Hamidu David Lawal, Suleiman Abubakar and two companies, Rholavision Engineering Ltd and Josmon Technologies Ltd., an offence contrary to Section 26(1)(c) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000 and punishable under Section 12 of the same Act.

Lawal was alleged to have conspired with Hamidu, a Director in Rholavision and Abubakar, a staff in the same company, to fraudulently acquire a property.

In October 2017, President Muhammadu Buhari had sacked Lawal, after a report of investigations by a panel chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, into allegations of fraud levelled against him.

Lawal pleaded not guilty to the charges against him, ass his lawyers are currently arguing for his bail application.

The matter is being presided over by Justice Jude Okeke.
