EFCC Charges NBA President With N1.4bn Fraud by 6Ebisco: 6:29am On Dec 06
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has filed a N1.4 billion fraud charge against the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr Paul Usoro (SAN), at the the Federal High Court in Lagos.

Justice Muslim Hassan fixed December 10, 2018 for the EFCC to arraign Usoro.

The anti-graft agency, in a charge marked FHC/418c/18, alleged that Usoro, from Akwa Ibom, converted and laundered the money in connivance with the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel.

The charge sheet, signed by EFCC Counsel, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, did not list Emmanuel as a defendant.

The EFCC indicated that he is “currently constitutionally immuned against criminal prosecution”.

It did, however, mention four other defendants.

They are: Nsikan Nkan, described as Commissioner for Finance, Akwa Ibom State; Mfon Udomah, described as the Accountant-General of Akwa Ibom State; Uwemedimo Nwoko, described as the Akwa Ibom State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice; and Margaret Ukpe, all of whom are said to be at large.

The commission alleged that Usoro, in connivance with the others mentioned, conspired to commit the offence “sometime in 2015 within the jurisdiction of this honourable court”.

The anti-graft agency claimed that the N1.4bn belonged to the Akwa Ibom State Government.

According to Oyedepo, the offences were contrary to Section 18 (a) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2011 and punishable under Section 15(3) of the same Act.

If the President of the NBA could be charged to court, The President of all the Lawyers in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, why can't our politicians face the same fate without the government thinking twice.

He's still innocent till he's found guilty as the law says.... we will be waiting for the outcome!
Good move by the EFCC!

All patriots must support the fight against Corruption. Nigeria will not prosper with corruption left unchecked like the Atikuloooters are advocating.

Yes more needs to be done, but watch as some atikuloooters will come start finger-pointing instead of supporting and encouraging EFCC to do more.

God bless Nigeria.

Who is a Saint in this country? Please who...
President of NBA? His colleagues will come out and use big big grammar to confuse the judge now and am very sure not will come out of this. It's getting worse daily in this country. There is no smoke without fire. Not at all. Forget about apabio, every elites have turned all the government purses as a source of income for their families . If you are not with them, you can't be like them.

At the rate we are going, before the next presidential election, nearly every politician opposed to having an 80 years old man as president of Nigeria in 2023 may have been charged with corruption.

Mr Paul Usoro (SAN), has refused to dance to their tune!

APC have almost everyone under their control! Anyone who refuses faces the wrath of either EFCC or DSS

Justice will be finally laid to rest in this country if APC is not voted out in 2019!
