Ahmed Idris: EFCC Uncovers Another ₦90b ‘Fraud’ Against Accountant-General by NewFolm4(m): 5:28am On May 30, 2022
The scope of the ongoing probe of the suspended Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reached N170billion.

Idris, who was battling for bail last night, has opened up on some top government officials allegedly involved in some transactions.

The EFCC has grilled a Permanent Secretary in connection with some “deals in which he was implicated”.

The anti-graft agency was also closing in on a minister who was fingered in the allegations against the suspended AGF.

It was learnt that Idris was arrested after he shunned 80 invitations by the EFCC.

According to an investigation by our correspondent, detectives of the EFCC have made startling discoveries about some transactions in the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation (OAGF).

It was gathered that although the AGF was initially accused of alleged N80 billion fraud, findings have unveiled another N90 billion scam.

There were indications that the AGF had made a commitment to the EFCC to refund some cash to the coffers of the government.

A reliable source, who spoke in confidence, said: “So far, the EFCC chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa and his team have made substantial progress.

“This is one of the biggest scandals that Bawa’s administration has uncovered.

“Based on preliminary investigation, the suspended AGF now will account for N170billion. Detectives are still digging more into his activities in office.

“Since his arrest on May 16th, he has made useful disclosures including some suspicious accounts and transactions.”

It was gathered that the AGF has also made available a list of government officials having to do with some financial activities in OAGF.

The source added: “As part of his disclosures during the investigation, a Federal Permanent Secretary was invited and interrogated by the EFCC last week.

“The Permanent Secretary is presently on bail and his movement restricted to Abuja. The Permanent Secretary has made a useful statement to investigators.

“A minister was also implicated.

“We have to verify whether or not the links with the minister were real or maybe the suspect was just desperate to rope in others.”

The source gave insight into why Idris was trailed to Kano to effect his arrest.

“From records, the suspended AGF was invited by the commission about 80 times but for reasons best known to him, he shunned EFCC’s request for interaction. He was just evasive.

“He was later trailed to Kano where he was picked up on May 16. He was still in custody as of yesterday but he has been offered bail.

“He needs to fulfil the conditions for bail and he has been battling to do so on Sunday.”

In a statement on May 16, the Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said the arrest of Idris followed his alleged refusal to honour the invitation.

The statement said: “Operatives of the EFCC, on May 16, arrested serving Accountant-General of the Federation, Mr. Ahmed Idris in connection with diversion of funds and money laundering activities to the tune of N80billion only.

“The commission’s verified intelligence showed that the AGF raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates.

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

“Idris was arrested after failing to honour invitations by the EFCC to respond to issues connected to the fraudulent acts.”

They're not even looting from what we have anymore... They're now desperately borrowing to loot.
I'd like to see Bawa beam the same light on his uncle, Malamungu.

This country is messed up big time, looting is worse under this government and it is very sad. This are just a few things they have uncovered, I know the money will run into trillions with the way dis people share money, at the end of the day this matter will be swept under the rug cos of the number of people involved in the sharing of the money.

ASUU is on strike, our roads are bad, the health care system is nothing to write home about.
No constant electricity, no job for the common man on the street.
Greed and corruption has eaten deep into these selfish politifians.

I'm pretty sure that the corruption, looting and thievery in this Buhari regime has enmass that of the PDP by a 100%.
Quote me if I'm wrong or right.

Each and any politicians that have stolen from our National treasury, and make life difficult for Nigerians, since independence, no matter the political party they are, they will never enjoy their stolen goods in good health and peace till the rest of their miserable lives.

For all the suffering people are going through in this nation, any looting and thieving politician, , will not end well.

And this also goes to their supporters, nothing good will come their way in life.


successmatters:

Abdulaziz Yari, I knew it !
When it comes to stealing of public funds, leave it for a part of this country. Balewa might be corrupt, which prompted a man from South south to oust him,
Gowon was so corrupt that Murtala kicked him out
Murtala was so corrupt that Dimka shot him
Shagari was corrupt, which prompted Buharri to oust him
Buharri was corrupt, which prompted Babangida to oust him
Babangida was so corrupt that his shadows chased him out of power
Abacha was so corrupt that he used PTF headed by Buharri to steal up to 20 million dollars.
Use your brain and stop tribalizing each and every issue.
Grow up.

Your Big bro has replied you fully, nothing to be added again.

IGBO Politicians are not corrupt, that's why the East looks like Paradise. With beautiful world class infrastructures. Okorocha who has a permanent Room in EFCC Cell, is not an IGBO Man. He is from Zamfara. grin grin

Ya this is exactly one of the numerous challenges of the country, we're perfect primary consumers and so proud with it. The reason why I love Peter Obi candidacy who understands economic permutations very well and knew what the country need this time is not to consume but to produce and save. Nevertheless trust some Nigerians and our political big shots, they will never allow such to happen bcz it will kill their looting business just like the one up there

Your very repeated frustration on this all the time speaks of your unproductive mind.
You just keep shifting blames and hatred to the ones who has chosen the path of life yet you who has never prayed can't even boast of producing a pap (akamu) to help increase the GDP of your location. Your mind is just shallow and the part of your brain that effects productive ideas is rotten.
Israel prays to this God
America pray to this God
UK pray to this same God
Russia call to your supposed lifeless God yet you want Nigeria to be like them, what a xenophobic hypocrisy.
