The Federal High Court Sitting in Lagos has ordered the remand of Senator Peter Nwaboshi in Ikoyi Prison.


The remand order follows the arraignment of the senator by the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of fraud.

Senator Nwaboshi, the lawmaker representing Delta North district at the
National Assembly, was arraigned by the anti-graft agency on Wednesday
on two counts of alleged fraud.

After listening to the arguments for and against his bail application,
Justice Mohammed Idris ordered that the lawmaker be remanded in prison
till Friday when a ruling would be given on whether or not to admit him
to bail.

Counsel to Senator Nwaboshi had asked the court to grant his client bail
on self-recognisance, but the EFCC opposed the bail application.

The anti-corruption informed the court that there were still pending charges against the lawmaker.
