A former Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, and two others were on Friday remanded in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Kuje.
They were remanded by Justice Adeyemi Ajayi of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, who directed that Idris and his co-defendants be kept in Kuje Correctional pending the hearing of their bail applications on July 27.
The order of the Court came after the arraignment of the former AGF by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Other defendants are Godfrey Olusegun Akindele, Mohammed Kudu Usman, and Gezawa Commodity Market and Exchange Ltd.
The defendants are being prosecuted on a 14-count charge of stealing and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N109, 485,572,691.9.
