EFCC interrogates ex-Kwara Gov over alleged diversion of N9bn
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has quizzed the immediate past Kwara Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, over alleged diversion of N9billion.
According to sources at the anti-graft agency, the former Governor is currently being grilled by a crack team of operatives at the headquarters of the EFCC in Jabi Abuja.
Ahmed was said to have arrived the EFCC headquarters around 10am on Monday to honour an invitation by the agency.
One of the sources said: “And for the past seven hours, he has been in the interrogation room, writing statements.
“Though details of the case are still sketchy as of press time, I think it is connected to how funds to the tune of about N9billion were diverted from the coffers of Kwara State Government during his tenure as Governor of Kwara state between 2011 and 2019.
“He is also expected to account for his time as Commissioner for Finance in the administration of Bukola Saraki, a former President of the Senate.”
EFCC Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the former Governor responded to the commission’s invitation.
Uwujaren however didn’t offer further details when asked.
