ABUJA, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Nigeria's financial crime watchdog arraigned ex-attorney general Mohammed Adoke for allegedly receiving bribes to facilitate a $1.3 billion oil deal, the agency said in a statement on Thursday.

It is the latest development in one of the oil industry's biggest corruption scandals.

An international investigation into the 2011 sale of the offshore oilfield known as OPL 245 by Malabu Oil and Gas has entangled two of the sectors biggest players, Shell and Eni, as well as an array of powerful figures from the previous Nigerian government.
