Alleged N700m Fraud, pastor Ize-Iyamu, Edo APC Governorship Candidate Appears In Court


The All Progressives Congress candidate for the September 19, 2020 governorship election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, on Tuesday appeared in court in a case preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Ize-Iyamu is being tried on an eight-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N700m reportedly deployed to prosecute the 2015 general elections.

Upon resumption of hearing, counsel to EFCC, Ahmed Arogha, appealed to the court for more time to respond to the objection motion raised by counsel to the five defendants bordering on the jurisdiction of the court to hear the matter.
