Another suspect linked to the controversial Gas Supply Project Agreement has been arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday.

The case is also about the the recent $9.6bn judgment given against Nigeria and in favour of Process and Industrial Developments by a British court.

The suspect Mrs. Grace Taiga, is a former Director, Legal Services of the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, who was said to have signed as Nigeria’s witness to the GSPA while the then minister presiding over the ministry, the late Dr. Rilwan Lukman, signed as Nigeria’s representative.

According to EFCC, Taiga would be arraigned on eight counts. The Apo Division of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja will be the venue.

Taiga, who is said to have hired a Senior Advocate of Nigeria to defend her, has been produced in the courtroom presided by Justice Olukayode Adeniyi.

Taiga pleaded not guilty when she was arraigned. Her plead was to the charges instituted against her in connection with the controversial P&ID $9.6bn judgment.
