FG presses charges against Justice Sylvester Ngwuta.

The Federal Government has preferred six counts, including money laundering against a Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice SYLVESTER NGWUTA, at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice NGWUTA was accused of retaining in his residence more than thirty five million Naira, three hundred and twenty thousand dollars and twenty six thousand Pounds during the raid on his house by the operatives of the Department of State Services between October 7 and 8.

The office of the Attorney General of the Federation, which filed the charges on Tuesday, described the sums of money as proceeds of unlawful activity.

Apart from the money laundering charges, Justice NGWUTA is also accused of being in possession of two valid Diplomatic Passports, an offence said to be contrary to Section 10 (1) (a) of the Immigration Act 2015.
