The US$57,217,301.15 was received in eight installments into Escrow accounts of Bob Oshodin Organisation Ltd.

“The offence is in contravention to Section 15 (2) (b) of the Money Laundering (Provision) Act, 2011 as amended in 2012,”

EFCC said.

Fellow defendant in the case, Robert Oshodin, is still at large, but Isabela Mimie Oshodin will be arraigned before Justice Taiwo Taiwo on Monday.
