Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s former information minister, is to stand as a prosecution witness in an alleged N2.5 billion fraud trial case involving the director general of the National Broadcasting Commission, Ishaq Modibbo Kawu.
The former minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Wednesday, June 26, did not appear in court to explain his role in the alleged approval of N2.5 billion to a company called Pinnacle Communications Ltd.
The forum in a statement signed by representatives of the six local government councils that made up the Kwara south senatorial district said there is no notable achievement by the minister in the area.
Engineer Friday Ukwela, a prosecution witness called by the ICPC, told a Federal High sitting in Abuja that the Digital Switch Over (DSC) facility put in place by Pinnacle Communications Ltd (PCL), “is world class.”
The minister of information and influential political leader, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, is having a hard time maintaining his status as the political leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his home state of Kwara.
