Former NNPC GMD Docked

Andrew Yakubu, Former Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation GMD.

By Oji Odu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arraigned former Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Andrew Yakubu, at the Justice Ahmed Mohammed Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
Yakubu is facing a six-count charge bordering on fraud and false declaration of assets which was filed against him by the EFCC on March 10, 2017. The agency also accused him of receiving huge sums of money without going through the financial institutions.
One of the charges read: “That you, Andrew Yakubu, on or before August 18, 2015, at the EFCC office at 5 Fomella Street, Wuse 2, Abuja, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, knowingly failed to make full disclosure of your assets to wit: the sum of $9,772,800 only in the Declaration of Assets form you filled at the EFCC dated August 18, 2015 and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27(3)(a) of the EFCC Act 2004 and punishable under Section 27(3)(c) of the same Act.”
Another charge read: “That sometime between 2012 and 2014 in Abuja, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court with intent to avoid a lawful transaction under law, you transported at various times to Kaduna, the aggregate sum of $9,772,800 only when you knew or reasonably ought to have known that the said funds formed part of the proceeds of some form of unlawful activities and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 7(4)(b)(ii) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, 2006 and punishable under Section 7(5) of the same Act.”
After the case was heard, the trial Judge ordered that Yakubu be remanded in Kuje prison pending the determination of his bail application on March 21.
Meanwhile, Justice Mohammed, had on Tuesday, cut short the hearing of Yakubu’s N1bn human rights enforcement suit against the EFCC and adjourned until March 28 for further hearing. Both the EFCC (the first respondent) represented by Johnson Ojogbane, and the Attorney-General of the Federation (second respondent), represented by Tijani Gazali, had urged the court to dismiss the suit.
They maintained that the Federal High Court in Abuja lacked the territorial jurisdiction to entertain the suit since the alleged violation of the plaintiff’s right took place in Kano and not Abuja.
