It was gathered that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) wednesday quizzed former Governor of Niger State, Dr. Babangida Aliyu, over alleged misappropriation of public funds during his tenure as the chief executive officer of the state.
EFCC Head of Media and Information, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that “Aliyu was invited by the anti-graft agency over alleged misappropriation of public funds during the period he was governor.”
According to Uwujaren, the former Niger State governor was still being interrogated by the EFCC in Abuja late last night.
It was not certain when the EFCC would conclude its interrogation and investigation before a possible arraignment of the former governor in court.
Attempt by Newsmen to get more clarifications last night on the investigation proved abortive.
Aliyu joined several other former governors, particularly those of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who have either been arrested or interrogated over allegations of corruption during their tenure in office.
