EFCC Arrests Accountant-General Of The Federation Over Alleged N80bn Fraud

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Monday, May 16, 2022, arrested the Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris in connection with alleged diversion of funds and money laundering activities to the tune of N80billion.

He was arrested after failing to honour invitations by the EFCC to respond to issues connected to the fraudulent acts.

EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement, on Monday night, said the commission’s verified intelligence showed that the AGF raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates. He said the funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja.
