A Federal High Court in Kano State, on Monday, rejected an application filed by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission seeking to transfer the case of alleged money laundering filed against former Governor Ibrahim Shekarau to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Justice Luis Allagoa dismissed the motion after hearing arguments for and against the transfer of the case to Abuja, due to insecurity.

Allagoa adjourned hearing in the case to December 3 and December 4 for trial to begin.

The EFCC charged ex-Governor Shekarau alongside former Foreign Affairs Minister, Aminu Wali and one Mansur Ahmad on six counts bordering on conspiracy and money laundering to the tune of N950m.
