The six count charge was contained in court papers filed on 9 March at the Federal High Court Abuja.

The EFCC had in February found about $9.8m and 74,000 pounds kept in a run down bungalow in Sabon Tasha in Kaduna. The money belonged to Yakubu.

Despite the national outrage over the discovery, Yakubu is pursuing a case in court against the EFCC, claiming the money was a gift. The EFCC is also contesting the jurisdiction of the court to hear the case.
