The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has identified an additional N90 billion “fraud” allegedly perpetrated by suspended Accountant-General Ahmed Idris, increasing the total amount of fraud to N170 billion.
The Nation stated that Idris, who was fighting for bail Friday night, spoke out against a number of high-ranking government officials allegedly involved in certain activities.
The EFCC also interrogated a permanent secretary over “deals in which he was implicated.”
The anti-corruption agency is also reportedly closing in on a minister implicated in the charges against the suspended AGF.
Ahmed Idris, who was arrested after ignoring eighty invitations from the EFCC, reportedly promised the agency to return some funds to the government’s coffers.
