It was gathered that the anti-graft agency quizzed the former governor for hours after his arrest by the operatives of the EFCC.
The Nation also reports that sources at the anti-graft agency said the former governor is currently being grilled by a crack team of operatives at the headquarters of the EFCC in Jabi Abuja.
One of the sources reportedly 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 N9billion were diverted from the coffers of Kwara state government during his tenure as the 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.”
The newspaper said the EFCC head of media and publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the former governor responded to the commission’s invitation.
According to the report, Uwujaren, however, didn’t offer further details when asked.
