Babachir Lawal detained in EFCC custody
A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday ordered that former Secretary-General to the Federation, Mr Babachir Lawal, be remanded in EFCC custody.
Mr Babachir Lawal is to be kept in EFCC custody, pending the ruling of the court on his bail application.
Babachir had earlier pleaded not guilty to a 10 count charge of fraudulent diversion of funds meant for the clearing of evasive plants on the North East.
Lawyers to the former SGF argued his application for bail before Justice Okeke of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The court however fixed the ruling on his bail application for February 13.
