Some fresh money laundering charges have been filed against former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
 
According to Punch newspaper, in the fresh charges which Fani-Kayode is the sole defendant, numbered, FHC/ABJ/CR/140/2016, was mentioned before Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday.
 
The EFCC in the fresh case filed five counts in which it accused the defendant of diverting N26m allegedly received from the Office of the National Security Adviser while Sambo Dasuki was in office.
 
The anti-graft agency also accused him of handling the said N26m without going through a financial institution as required under the Money Laundering Act.
 
Although Fani-Kayode was absent  in the proceedings, he was represented by a team of lawyers led by Mr. Wale Balogun. Balogun wondered why the prosecution who filed the charges was not aware of the proceedings.
 
He complained that his client had yet to be served with the charges as required, and sought an adjournment and the judge adjourned till November 10 for arraignment.
 
The judge also ordered that hearing notice be served on the EFCC.
 
Recall the embattled former minister is already facing 17 counts of money laundering before the Lagos Division of the court, along with a former Finance Minister, Nenadi Usman; Danjuma Yusuf and a firm, Joint Trust Dimension Nig. Ltd.
 
They were charged with unlawful retention, unlawful use and unlawful payment of money to the tune of N4.9bn.
