The funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja.

Ahmed Idris was picked up after failing to honor invitations to respond to issues connected to the alleged fraudulent acts.

Recall that Idris was recently in the news for marrying a 16-year-old girl Hussain who’s family claimed that she was deceived by millions of Naira thrown at her by the 62-year-old billionaire.
