The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday re-arraigned one Abiodun Abiola Sodiq before an Ikeja Special Offenses Court over alleged €40,000 fraud.

Abiodun Sodiq was arraigned on a seven-count-charge bordering on fraud, forgery and conspiracy before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.

The EFCC alleged that the defendant defrauded a businessman, Babatunde Emmanuel of the money on the pretext that it would be used for Malta Government Citizenship Investment Programme and procurement of Malta international Passport which pretence he knew to be false.

When the charges were read to him, he pleaded not guilty to the seven-count-charge brought against him by the anti-graft agency.

EFCC prosecuting counsel, Nkereuwem Nana, asked the court for a trial date.

But the defense counsel, Elizabeth Ezerhume informed the court of a pending application due for hearing.

Subsequently, the presiding judge, Justice Taiwo adjourned till December 7, for ruling and trial.
