Fredrick Nwabufo

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission will arraign Grace Taiga, a former director in the ministry of petroleum resources, before a high court in Abuja, on Friday.

Taiga, an ex-director of legal services in the ministry, was said to have signed as a witness in the gas supply and processing agreement between Nigeria and the Process and Industrial Development Limited (P&ID), an Irish engineering firm incorporated in the British Virgin Islands.

Two directors of P&ID were convicted by a federal high court in Abuja on Thursday for economic sabotage and money laundering. But the company disclaimed them.
