The immediate past Governor of Akwa-Ibom State and current Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, has returned to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for more questioning after he was allowed to go home Friday night.
Mr. Akpabio was first questioned on Friday as part of investigations into allegations of N108.1 billion fraud against him while serving as Governor of his state between 2007 and 2015.
The Senate minority leader reportedly arrived the EFCC shortly before noon on Saturday, accompanied by his counsel and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Ricky Tarfa and some aides.
He is still been interrogated by crack team of EFCC detectives as at the time of publishing this report.
Earlier today, we reported that Senator Akpabio denied reports that he was arrested by the EFCC, insisting that he visited the anti-graft agency’s office Friday evening on his own volition, based on some spurious allegations by an Abuja-based lawyer and activist, Mr. Leo Ekpenyong.
