The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has stated that it has recovered over 30 billion Naira from the suspended Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
Recall that Idris was alleged to have fraudulently amassed 109 billion Naira.
Speaking on Idris’s alleged fraud, the agency chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa at the weekly ministerial briefing in the State House confirmed that high-profile personalities and government agencies across the board, have been subject to investigations including the EFCC, which is evident of the government’s successful anti-corruption drive.
He disclosed that through a special control unit against Money laundering (SCUML), would make it difficult for Nigerians to launder proceeds of crime in the next two or three years.
He also announced that the commission will by the end of the year publish nationwide auction real estates across 15 locations in the country, in order to dispose of over 150 flats and apartments forfeited assets.
