Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), is now being interrogated by agents from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Anyim was invited as part of an inquiry into alleged corruption and misappropriation of public funds, according to a senior commission official.
Anyim, who arrived at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Jabi, Abuja, at 3 p.m., is currently being interrogated by a team of agents.
Though the particular allegations against the former SGF were unclear at the time, a person familiar with the matter said it is linked to a corruption and money laundering case involving Senator Stella Oduah, a former Aviation Minister and serving senator.
A total of N780 million in rehabilitation funding was allegedly tracked to a firm in which Senator Anyim has a stake.
