Abuja: A personal aide to former
Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo faces a six-count
indictment accusing him of money laundering in a case
involving massive bribes paid by a former Halliburton Co
subsidiary.

Adeyanju Bodunde was charged today in federal court
with accepting USD 1.5 million in bribes between 2002 and 2003
from employees connected with Kellogg, Brown & Root LLC.

A prosecutor says that money ended up reaching several
others in powerful positions during Obasanjo`s presidency.

In February, KBR pleaded guilty in US federal court in
Houston to bribing Nigerian government officials to obtain
contracts valued at more than USD 6 billion.
