Money Laundering: Court Rejects Bid To Arrest Ladoja

u

A Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday refused to issue arrest warrant  on a former governor of Oyo State, Rasheed Ladoja, following his presence in court.

At the last adjourned date on November 21, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had urged the court to issue a bench warrant against Ladoja for failing to appear in court and answer N4.7 billion money laundering charges preferred against the ex-governor, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Ladoja’s counsel, Mr. Bolaji Onilenla in his reactions to the application, told the court that he was not aware that the business of the day was for arraignment.

“This was because there was a pending case before the Supreme Court,” the counsel added.
