Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Bello Haliru Mohammed, was, today, January 5, 2015, taken to an Abuja court on a wheel chair to face corruption charges.

Mohammed was wheeled into a courtroom at the Federal High Court in Abuja by an aide.

The former PDP chairman and his son, Abbah have been charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly participating in the $2 billion arms deal fraud which was supervised by former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

Dasuki is at the center of the massive money laundering investigation and is alleged to have supervised the looting of the funds which were meant for the procurement of arms for Nigeria's military.

He was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on December 1, 2015 and handed over to the EFCC the day after.

The former NSA is reported to have implicated several prominent persons in the deal including former governors, ex-ministers and members of the PDP.

Dasuki’s lawyer however denied the report that his client had become an informant while the former NSA said that ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan was aware of the transactions he had made.

Jonathan has however denied authorizing the release of the stated funds despite the former NSA’s claim that he got the necessary presidential approval for the transactions.

Dasuki was released on bail from Kuje Prison on Tuesday but was soon re-arrested by the DSS.
