The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday commenced investigation into alleged diversion of N9billion levelled against the immediate past Kwara Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed.
According to TheNation, Ahmed is currently being grilled by a crack team of EFCC operatives at the agency headquarters in Jabi Abuja.
This has been confirmed by the EFCC Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, saying the former Governor had responded to the commission’s invitation.
The ex-governor was said to have arrived at the EFCC headquarters around 10am on Monday to honour an invitation by the agency.
A source 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.”
