EFCC Arrests AGF Ahmed Idris Over Alleged N80bn Fraud

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have reportedly quizzed the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.

Naija News learned that the AGF was arrested on Monday over the diversion of funds and money laundering to the tune of N80 billion.

In a statement on Monday signed by its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC said Idris was arrested after failing to honour its several invitations.

The anti-graft agency accused the AGF of laundering the funds through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja.

According to the commission, Idris raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates.

“Mr. Idris was arrested after failing to honour invitations by the EFCC to respond to issues connected to the fraudulent acts,” the statement read in part.
