Abuja Court Grants Ex-NNPC Boss, Andrew Yakubu, N300M Bail

A former group managing director of Nigeria’s oil corporation, Andrew Yakubu, who was accused of fraud has been granted a 300 million Naira bail by an Abuja court.

Andrew Yakubu, the ex-group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), was charged with money laundering and fraud when he appeared in court in Abuja on March 16.

The charges relate to the discovery by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of $9.8 million and £74,000 in cash at a property in Kaduna.

He was also charged with failing to make a ''full disclosure'' of his assets and for unlawfully transporting the cash to the city. He pleaded not guilty.
