Abuja - Former Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has described as a joke attempt by Lagos lawyer, Femi Falana, to link her to the controversial $2.1 billion arms scandal, Tribune reports.

She said it shows that the so-called learned lawyer does not have any idea of what the mandate of the ICC is about.
