Abuja - Former Imo State governor, Ohakim
Ikedia, will return to court next month to answer to charges of money
laundering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has laid against him.
The ex-premier, who was at the helm between 2007 and
2011, was first arraigned in July on a three-count charge.
