EFCC Arrests Former Kwara Gov, Abdulfatah Ahmed

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the immediate past governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed.

Channels Television reports that the former governor is being questioned by a crack team of operatives at the EFCC headquarters in the Jabi area of Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He was said to have arrived at the EFCC headquarters at about 10am on Monday, in response to the invitation extended to him by the agency.

Following his arrival at the anti-graft agency’s office, Ahmed was in the interrogation room for about seven hours, writing statements.

A spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the former governor responded to the commission’s invitation.

He, however, declined further comments.

Ahmed was appointed as the Commissioner for Finance in Kwara after Saraki assumed office as governor in 2003.

He also served as the treasurer of the Forum of Commissioners of Finance in Nigeria, as well as the Chairman of the Budget Formulation Committee and Economic Team of Kwara State.
