Ex-President Jonathan’s cousin sent to Kuje Prison Over $40 million scam

A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered that a cousin to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Azibaola Robert, be remanded in Kuje Prison pending the determination of his bail application. Justice Nnamdi Dimgba handed the order on Monday when Mr. Robert and his wife, Stella, were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The anti-graft body had arraigned the duo on a seven-count charge bordering on money laundering, criminal breach of trust and corruption. Mr. Robert and wife are accused of diverting $40 million purportedly meant for the supply of tactical communication kits for Nigeria’s Special Forces
