The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday re-arraigned Abiodun Sodiq before an Ikeja Special Offences Court for alleged 40,000 euro fraud.

Sodiq was arraigned on a seven-count charge of fraud, forgery and conspiracy.

The EFCC alleged that the defendant defrauded a businessman, Babatunde Emmanuel, on the pretext of using the money for Malta Government citizenship Investment Programme and procurement of Malta international passport.
