EFCC Rejects Former Minister's Out-Of-Court Settlement Over Alleged N650m Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday told a Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursdayit rejected an offer for an out-of-court settlement by a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Jumoke Akinjide.

Akinjide was charged along with former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is said to be at large, a former Senator, Ayo Adeseun and a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart, Chief Olarenwaju Otiti.

Justice Muslim Hassan had adjourned at the last proceedings to enable both parties to conclude the settlement talks with EFCC after Akinjide’s lawyer, Chief Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN) reported that the N650 million had been returned.

On Thursday, EFCC’s lawyer, Mr Nnaemeka Omenwa, who stood in for the lead prosecutor, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, said he was instructed to turn down the proposal for out-of-court settlement.
Justice Hassan adjourned until March 8 and March 9 for continuation of trial.
