Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested Nigeria’s Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
He was arrested on Monday, May 16, 2022 over allegation of funds diversion and money laundering to the tune of N80billion.
According to EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, who made this known in a statement said the commission acted on verified intelligence against Idris.
“AGF raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates.
The funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja. Mr. Idris was arrested after failing to honour invitations to respond to issues connected to the alleged [email protected] acts,” Uwujaren said in the statement.
