EFCC questions Kwara state former governor

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has begun questioning the former governor of Kwara state, Abdulfatah Ahmed, regarding a multi-billion naira transaction that took place during his tenure as governor.

The former governor arrived at the anti-graft agency office at Ilorin on Monday morning, February 19.

A report on Channels television said that the EFCC invited Ahmed and he is currently answering questions as to how the money under his administration was spent.

According to The Nation: “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 N9 billion were diverted from the coffers of Kwara state government during his tenure as governor of Kwara state between 2011 and 2019.”

The EFCC media and publicity head, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed that the former governor responded to the commission’s invitation. Uwujaren however, declined further details.
