The defendants are facing 17 counts bordering on conspiracy, unlawful retention of proceeds of theft and money laundering.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had, on Nov. 10, 2016, arraigned Fani-Kayode for allegedly receiving N26m from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).
Some newer money laundering charges were earlier filed against him by the EFCC before the same court in Abuja.
The anti-graft agency, in the fresh case, filed a five-count charge in which it accused the defendant of diverting N26m allegedly received from the ONSA while Col. Sambo Dasuki (retired.) was in office.
The anti-graft agency also accused him of handling the said N26m without going through the financial institution as required under the Money Laundering Act.
