Former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Warpamo Dudafa, was yesterday, arraigned before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, on a 23-count charge of alleged N5.1 billion fraud. He was charged alongside one Iwejuo Joseph Nna who is also known as Taiwo Ebenezer and Olugbenga Isaiah.

They both pleaded not guilty to the charge and were ordered to be remanded in prison custody, pending the hearing of their bail applications. The accused are being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. After their plea, the prosecutor, Rotimi Oyedepo, urged the court to remand them in prison custody, and adjourned for trial.

However, counsel to the accused persons, Gboyega Oyewole and Sunday Abumere, informed the court that their clients’ bail applications had been filed, and same served on the prosecution. They urged the court to admit their clients on bail in liberal term. But Oyedepo admitted receiving the bail applications and informed the court that he was not opposing the bail applications but needed time to respond.

The trial judge ordered that the accused persons be remanded in prisons custody till tomorrow for the court decide on their bail applications.
