The former minister is among three defendants charged before the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on a three count charge of allegedly deploying over N362 million derived from a $115 million slush fund to influence the outcome of the 2015 presidential election in favour of the candidate of the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.

In the application, the EFCC noted that the expensive jewellery comprising wristwatches, necklaces, bracelets, bangles, earrings and more were reasonably suspected to have been acquired with proceeds of unlawful activities of the former Minister.
