Former Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika, along with three others including his daughter, Fatima, is set to appear before Justice Sylvanus Oriji of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Maitama on Thursday. This arraignment stems from an amended six-count charge, alleging an abuse of office totaling N2.7 billion.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been investigating Sirika for financial malfeasance, specifically related to contracts awarded during his tenure as minister. This led to his detention on April 23 after being interrogated at the EFCC’s Formella Street, Wuse 2 Zonal office in Abuja.

A source within the EFCC mentioned that Sirika had been cooperating with investigators regarding the alleged contract frauds. The initial arraignment date was scheduled for Tuesday but was postponed due to the EFCC’s request to amend the charges.
