Former Power Minister Saleh Mamman to Face N33bn Money Laundering Charges Today

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will arraign former Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman, today, July 11, before Justice James Omotoso of the Federal High Court.
Mamman is facing a 12-count charge related to conspiracy to commit money laundering and possession and use of known proceeds of criminal conduct totaling N33 billion.
Mamman, who served under former President Muhammadu Buhari from 2019 to 2021, was arrested and detained by the EFCC on May 10, 2021. His dismissal, along with then Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Sabo Nanono, came on September 1, 2021, as part of a cabinet restructuring by Buhari.
The charges against Mamman include allegations of conspiring with ministry staff handling the accounts of the Zungeru and Mambilla Hydro Electric Power projects to divert approximately N22 billion. Investigations have reportedly uncovered properties linked to the suspects in Nigeria and abroad, with millions of naira and dollars recovered.
