EFCC Gets Order To Detain Accountant-General Ahmed Idris For More Days by dre11(m): 7:52am On May 20
By Idowu Isamotu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has secured a court order to detain the embattled Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, for more days.

An official of the anti-graft agency, who did not want to be quoted, disclosed that the legal department of the commission secured the order within 24 hours after Idris was arrested in Kano.

Although the detective did not state the court where the order was obtained, he explained that they have been relying on the order to keep him in their custody pending the conclusion of their investigation.

“He is still here with us, he has been cooperating. We will get to the root of the matter. The good thing is that our legal department has secured a court order helping us to hold him till we conclude our investigations,” the source said.

When asked about when he would be released, the official said Idris may be charged to court anytime, saying “evidence at our disposal is damning”.

He added that some of the properties linked to him in Abuja, Lagos and Kano might be forfeited temporarily, noting that the commission will also push for their permanent forfeiture to the federal government.

The Federal Government on Wednesday announced the suspension of the embattled accountant-general with a view to allowing a thorough investigation.

In a letter conveying Idris’ suspension, the Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed warned the embattled public official not to visit the office at any time.

According to her, the accountant-general’s suspension was in line with the public service rules.

“Following your recent arrest by EFCC on allegations of diversion of funds and money laundering, I write to convey your suspension from work without pay effective May 18, 2022,” the letter partly read.

Efforts to reach the spokesman of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, proved abortive as several calls pulled across to him did not connect.

EFCC, a toothless bulldog and spineless cowards are now living to the billings- not pursuing only internet fraudsters.

They should ransack more! There are still many thieves there. Just in a week we read of #47B and #80B respectively. How much more if they prob further.

This same man told ASUU their demands are not realistic. What's the difference between how much you stole and the demands. Add the NDDC guy and you will really Education will improve.

Money than can sink 80000 boreholes;

Build 336.13km of roads;

47Km of rail line;

2091 x 50 seater bus

2.5milion capital for 32000 SMEs.

Truly, the devil needs to do internship in Nigeria.

The accountant general really counts his loots in billions, while his audit reports are reports that have left us in the hands of China and other international financial bodies as debtors.

That money would go a long way in resolving the ongoing fracas between ASUU and federal government. But greed has taken over almost everywhere in this our country.

The problem now is that very soon this case will be swept under the carpet and no one will know what happened.

And why didn't they take a picture of the AG and post online like they usually do?
Re: EFCC Gets Order To Detain Accountant-General Ahmed Idris For More Days by Aidejay(m): 8:35am On May 20
The attorney general of the federation cannot just steal N80 billion without collaboration. It's virtually impossible.
Where was the treasury, ministry of finance, Departments, auditors, CBN and banks.

It's either the N80b figure is exaggerated or in some miraculous way it vanished.
