EFCC Gives Important Update Following Arrest Of Accountant-General Over N80 Billion Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has relocated the Accountant-General of the Federation (AG-F) Ahmed Idris.


He was relocated from Kano to Abuja, according to a report by TheNation.

Recall that Idris was arrested on Monday by operatives of the Kano Zonal Officer of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for interrogation over alleged N80 billion fraud.

He was moved yesterday to Abuja where he allegedly committed some financial infractions.

It was learnt last night that the anti-graft agency has invited some relations of Idris and consultants whose firms were believed to have been used for some curious transactions.

EFCC has been working on clues that the consultancy jobs were allegedly used by the AG-F to launder funds.

A source said: “The commission has moved the AG-F from Kano to Abuja for interrogation. He is already cooperating with our detectives.

“So far, he is still in custody because EFCC has invited some of his relations and consultants who allegedly executed some questionable or non-existent contracts.

“The commission will brief the nation appropriately after our findings.”
