The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday arraigned Aisha Alkali Wakil and Prince Lawal Shoyade before the Federal High Court, Maiduguri, Borno State, on a three-count charge, bordering of money laundering.

Wakil and Shoyade were arraigned by the Maiduguri Zonal Office of the anti-graft commission.
