Former PDP chairman Bello Mohammed re-arraigned for suspected ₦300m fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arraigned former PDP national chairman Bello Mohammed and his business, Bam Projects and Properties Ltd, in a ₦300M fraud case before Justice Peter Lifu of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Mohammed was re-arraigned on a four-count indictment bearing on his alleged participation in the diversion of monies destined for the acquisition of armaments, via the office of the ex-National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

The defendants pled not guilty to all the charges, forcing the counsel to the EFCC to request for a trial date.

The defendant’s attorney, Kanu Agabi, however, pleaded the court to let Mohammed to stay on current bail granted by Justice Ahmed Mohammed.

However, Justice Lifu, who affirmed Mohammed to the bail originally granted by a sister court, delayed the issue to May 7 and May 8 for trial.
