N4.4 billion Fuel Subsidy Scam: EFCC Re-arraigns Ahmadu Ali’s Son, Others

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arraigned Mamman Nasir Ali, the son of the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ahmadu Ali and three others before an Ikeja High Court over an alleged N4.4 billion fuel subsidy fraud.

The defendants were re-arraigned before Jusice Adeniyi Onigbanjo on a 13-count charge of conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretence, forgery and the use of false documents.

One of the defendants, Abdulazeez Afis is said to still be at large. Others arraigned alongside Ali were Christian Taylor, Oluwaseun Ogunbambo and Nasaman Oil Services.
EFCC had initially arraigned Ali alongside Christian Taylor and Nasaman Oil Services on July 26 for an alleged N2.2 billion fuel subsidy fraud before amending the charge which led to their re-arraignment.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges as Justice Onigbanjo ordered that Ali and Taylor should continue to enjoy the N20 million bail earlier granted them by the court on July 26 when they were first arraigned.
