The detention was ordered on Tuesday in a ruling by Justice Nathan Musa at a High Court in Yola, the state’s capital in northeast Nigeria.

The EFCC had charged Mr Ngilari for violation of procurement laws in the award of contract of 167 million Naira to one El-Yadi Motors Limited for supply of 25 units of operational vehicles (Toyota Corolla).

The Commission had instituted a 19-count charge against Ngilari, his former Secretary to the State Government, Ibrahim Welye and his former Commissioner of Finance and Budget, Sanda Lamurde.

The EFCC also accused them of conspiracy, lack of “No Objection Certificate”, no competitive bidding and others in procurement process.

The three pleaded not guilty and their lawyers applied for bail on their behalf, but the the prosecution opposed that appeal.

The court then ruled that they should be remanded in custody of the EFCC while the judge adjourned until Wednesday for ruling on the bail application.
