A former junior minister of Finance, Nenadi Usman, has begged a federal court in Lagos to grant her leave to travel abroad to treat her breast cancer.
The defendant is facing a 17-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, and fraud alongside Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister; Danjuma Mohammed; and Jointrust Dimensions Nigeria Limited amounting to over N38 billion.
