The Economic and Financial Crime Commission EFCC, on Wednesday, rearranged suspended Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris and three others over alleged N109.5 billion fraud in an FCT High Court, Maitama.
They were first arraigned on July 22 before a vacation judge, Justice Adeyemi Ajayi on a 13 count charge bordering on misappropriation to the tune of 109.5 billion naira to which They pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against them by EFCC.
Upon the resumption of the court, the case was transferred to Justice Yusuf Halilu.
Following their not-guilty plea, counsel for Idris, Chris Uche, prayed the court to allow the defendants to continue to enjoy the earlier bail granted them by the court on July 28.
Ruling on the application, Justice Halilu held THAT having been previously granted bail by the court, he is favourably inclined to allow the defendants to continue enjoying the early bail granted them by the court.
He, however, directed that defendants submit their passports to the court’s registrar.
