The Court sitting in Abuja has ordered that Ex-NNPC boss, Andrew Yakubu, be remanded in Kuje prison pending the determination of his bail application on March 21.
A special operation conducted by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on 3rd February, 2017 on a building belonging to a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Andrew Yakubu in Kaduna yielded the recovery of a staggering sum of $9,772,800 and another sum of £74,000 in a fire proof safe.
This led to his arraignment on a six-count fraud before Justice Ahmed Mohammed by the EFCC after he admitted owning over $9.8 million cash found in a house that also belongs to him in Kaduna State before the Federal high court in Abuja today.
Andrew has however pleaded not guilty to the charge filed by the EFCC.
