Lulu is facing corruption charges, with a trial that
includes an eight-count charge bordering mismanagement of N1.3 billion.
The judge stated that defendants are bound by a Public
Procurement Act, which means that Lulu needs to defend himself in the charges
put against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
