US government filed a 97,000-page document in court as evidence of alleged fraud against Abidemi Rufai’s aide


The US government has filed a 97,000-page document in court as evidence of alleged fraud against Abidemi Rufai, an aide to Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun who has been suspended.

According to court filings obtained by Premium Times, the prosecution presented the evidence on July 26 in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington in Tacoma.

Both the prosecution and the defense have requested that the August 31 trial date be postponed, citing the “voluminous and complex” nature of the evidence presented.

On August 3, 2021, the agreed-upon application was filed.

The document also stated that “much of the material may need to be redacted before it can be provided to the defendant.”

The government is currently executing two additional electronic search warrants, according to the document, because much of the material “contains personal identifying information or sensitive financial information.”

On May 24, 2021, Rufai was apprehended in New York while attempting to flee the country.

During the Covid-19 pandemic last year, prosecutors say he stole $350,000 in unemployment benefits from the Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) using the identities of more than 100 Washington residents.
