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.
The offence is said to be contrary to Sections 18(a) and 1(a) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act 2011 and were liable to be punished under Section 16(2)(b) of the same Act.
Channels Television gathered that the defendants will likely be arraigned next week.
