The embattled cousin of ex president Goodluck Jonathan has landed in prison as his corruption trial takes a new turn.
Mr. Azibaola Robert, a cousin to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been remanded in Kuje Prison on the orders of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, pending the determination of his bail application.
Azibaola and his wife, Stella were arraigned before Justice Dimgba for allegedly receiving a $40m contract from embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
The couple alongside their company, Oneplus Holding Limited, were arraigned on seven counts bordering on money laundering and fraud.
While the court ruled that Stella could continue to enjoy the administrative bail earlier granted her by the EFCC, the judge adjourned till Wednesday to rule on the bail application for Azibaola.
