Another N90bn Fraud Involving Suspended Accountant-General Uncovered
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has uncovered another N90 billion alleged fraud involving the suspended Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
It was earlier reported that the operatives of the EFCC took the suspended AGF into its custody on May 16 and he is being investigated over allegations of corruption to the tune of N80 billion.
Idris, who was seeking bail, had reportedly mentioned some top government officials allegedly involved in some transactions.
One of his suspected accomplices was a former governor of Zamfara State, Abdul-Azeez Yari, who was arrested on Sunday evening and taken into custody.
The anti-graft agency had also grilled a Permanent Secretary in connection with some “deals in which he was implicated.”
