The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited the immediate past Former Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed, for questioning over the alleged diversion of N9 billion while in office.

According to sources at the anti-graft agency, the former Governor is currently being grilled by a crack team of operatives at the headquarters of the EFCC in Jabi Abuja.

Ahmed arrived at the EFCC headquarters around 10 am on Monday to honour the invitation by the agency.

One of the sources said: “And for the past seven hours, he has been in the interrogation room, writing statements.

“Though details of the case are still sketchy as of press time, I think it is connected to how funds to the tune of about N9 billion were diverted from the coffers of Kwara State Government during his tenure as Governor of Kwara state between 2011 and 2019.

“He is also expected to account for his time as Commissioner for Finance in the administration of Bukola Saraki, a former President of the Senate.”

Head of Media and Publicity EFFC, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the former Governor responded to the commission’s invitation.

No further details were given by Mr Uwujaren.
