The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting Nyame on a 41-count charge before Justice Adebukola Banjoko.

Nyame, who served as Governor of the North Central State from May 1999 to May 2007, is accused of misappropriating the sum of N1.64bn at the end of his administration in 2007.

More to come.
