A photograph has emerged showing a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed; former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media, Reuben Abati; ex-Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro; former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode; and a Peoples Democratic Party leader in Kano, Bashir Ishaq Bashir, when they were in detention at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The photograph, exclusively obtained bySUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday, showed the five men accused of money laundering and other financial crimes looking happy.

In the photo, Mohammed donned black clothes, while Obanikoro was dressed in a white vest and what looked like a pair of boxers.


The ex-minister was captured in the picture waving his right hand and Fani-Kayode raising two fingers (sign of victory) in the air.

Bashir, posing for the camera at the far right, was seen grinning.

Abati, Obanikoro, Fani-Kayode, and Mohammed were prominent figures in former President Goodluck Jonathan’s government
