EFCC arraigns Reps NDDC Chair Mutu over alleged N400m money laundering

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned the Chairman of the House Representatives Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Hon Nichols Mutu, before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

However the chairman Mr. Mutu was arraigned on a charge in which he was accused of involvement in about N400million money laundering and receiving kickbacks from NDDC contractors.

Mutu, who has been the Chairman of the House Committee on NNDC since 1999, was pleaded not guilty of the charge, following which Justice Folashade Giwa-Ogunbanjo allowed him to remain on the administrative bail earlier granted him by the EFCC.
