A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the remand of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi of Delta state to Ikoyi Prison.

This development follows the arraignment of the senator by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of fraud.

Nwaoboshi who represents Delta North district at the National Assembly was arraigned by the anti-graft agency on Wednesday on two counts of fraud.

It was learnt that the Presiding judge, Justice Mohammed Idris ordered that the lawmaker is remanded in prison till Friday when a ruling would be given on whether or not to admit him to bail.
