Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Mohammed, will spend two nights in Kuje prison.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday arraigned Mohammed before the court over alleged corruption to the tune of N55om.

But the minister pleaded not guilty to the charges, setting the stage for a trial.

The anti-graft agency, which had earlier arrested Mohammed, filed a seven-count charge of corruption against him.

The EFCC also alleged that he abused his office while he was a minister.

In February, the EFCC arraigned his son, Shamsudeen, before a federal high court, Abuja, for alleged money laundering.

He spent a few days in Kuje prison before he was granted bail in the sum of N100m.
