A former Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman Prof. Maurice Iwu has shown up at the Federal High Court in Lagos for his arraignment.
Iwu, who arrived court at about 9.30am is waiting for the vacation judge to sit.
He is in the court to face trial for allegedly laundering N1.2billion.
Accompanied by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives, Iwu was said to have been involved in the N23.29billion poll bribery scandal during the 2015 election.
The former INEC Chairman wore a blue “senator” attire as he was led to Justice Chuka Obiozor’s court.
The presiding judge, who is the only one sitting during the court’s ongoing annual long vacation, is expected to arrive any moment for Iwu to take his plea.
Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Ahmed Raji, who is also counsel for former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki is counsel to the former INEC boss.
Also named in the charge is former Petroleum Minister Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke.
