The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.
Wilson noted that EFCC operatives took Idris into custody for embezzlement and he is accused of diversion of funds and money laundering to the tune of N80billion.
Uwujaren also clarified that the commission acted on verified intelligence against Idris.
He is said to have “raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates”.
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.
The man reportedly bought the girl who is now his fourth wife a house worth N500million in Abuja and the latest flashy cars.
