NAFDAC DG, Paul Orhii has cleared the air on his supposed arrest by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).


According to Orhii, he was never arrested by the ani-graft agency, EFCC.


The Benue State born Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Orhii criticized all reports that he was arrested by the EFCC over corruption allegations.

According to a statement signed by the Agency’s spokesman Abubakar Jimoh and published of NAFDAC’s Facebook page, Orhii was truly present at the EFCC office, but the visit was described as “normal and routine process for anyone who is accused to respond and clear his name accordingly.”

A former finance director of NAFDAC, Ademola Mogbojuri, had alleged that Orhii was behind shady deal and financial recklessness at the agency.

He said the DG refused to remit funds meant for the federation account, and instead channelled the agency’s internally generated revenues to fund political campaign in his home Benue State.

Orhii has however denied all allegations, and it is believed he was at the EFCC to defend himself
