Turaki who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, was the Minister for Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs from 2013 to 2015.
He also served as the Supervising Minister of Labour from 2014 to 2015.
He was docked alongside his former Special Assistant, Sampson Okpetu, and two firms- Samtee Essentials Limited and Pasco Investment Limited- on a 16-count charge.
