The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday closed its case in the trial of a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, who was
charged with money laundering.
Fani-Kayode is standing trial on an amended 40-count charge bordering on money laundering, before a Federal
High Court sitting in Lagos.
When the case was mentioned on Thursday, the prosecution counsel, Festus Keyamo, through a letter delivered by Vitalis Ahaotu, informed the court of the closure of its case.
The defence counsel, Wale Akoni (SAN), did not object to the letter by the prosecution.
Akoni, however, informed the court of his intention to file a no-case submission to the charges against his client.
Consequently, Justice Rita-Ofili Ajumogobia gave the defence 21 days within which to file their application
before the court and ordered the prosecution to respond within seven days on receipt of the process.
