The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will arraign Mr. Uyiekpen Giwa-Osagie in court on Wednesday next week.
Mr. Osagie, who is a legal advocate of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, will be arraigned at the Federal High Court in Lagos on a three count charge against him.
The charges border on alleged laundering of $2m in the build-up to this year’s general elections.
Also named in the charge is Erhunse Giwa-Osagie, who is said to be his brother.
The EFCC alleged that the two defendants conspired between each other to make a cash payment of $2m on February 12, 2019, without going through a financial institution.
