BREAKING! Orubebe Appears In Court Over N70Million Bribe Allegations

Former minister of Niger Delta affairs, Godsday Orubebe, was on Monday, November 9, spotted at a Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja, where he is facing a four-count charge on money laundering.

Elder Godsday Orubebe appears in court on Monday, November 9, 2015, over money laundering charges.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, who is more popular for disrupting the announcement of the 2015 presidential election winner, has been in the news recently over the money laundering allegations.

Ibraheem Al-hassan, head of press and public relations of the CCT, had confirmed that a charge was pending against Orubebe before the tribunal, revealing also that on Thursday, October 29, the summons was served on Orubebe.

The former minister has since denied the allegations, stating that he is being unnecessary framed by the present administration because of his huge support for ousted president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Orubebe also denied ever demanding or collecting bribe throughout his six-year sojourn as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, adding that he was convinced that the CCT was out to frame him given the way it had already begun his ‘trial’ in the media when he had only been served with the summons to appear before the court on November 9, 2015.
