The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday arraigned two self-acclaimed whistle-blowers, Buhari Fannami and Ba-Kura Abdullahi, on two separate charges before Justice M. T. Salihu of the Federal High Court in Maiduguri, for allegedly giving false information to the agency.

The EFCC said in a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, that Fannami and Abdullahi had misled the commission with information about some illegally acquired money purportedly buried at the residence of one Ba’a Lawan but the information turned out to be false after the execution of a search warrant.

The anti-graft agency said the defendants allegedly gave the false information on May 8, 2017, adding that they acted contrary to Section 39 (2) (a) of the EFCC (Establishment) Act 2004 and they were liable to be punished under Section 39 (2) (b) of the same Act.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the their separate charges.

The prosecuting counsel for the EFCC, Alkassim Ja’afar, asked for a trial date and prayed the court to remand Fannani and Abdullahi in the prison custody pending trial.

Justice Salihu adjourned the matter till June 7 and 8, 2017 for hearing and ordered that  the accused should be remanded in the prison custody.
