BREAKING: EFCC Brings Suspended Accountant-general To Court Over ‘N109bn Fraud’
Ahmed Idris, the temporarily suspended accountant-general of the federation, has appeared in a federal capital territory high court with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Naijacrawl reported in May that Idris had been detained in Kano after declining the commission’s invitations to provide answers about the alleged N80 billion scam.
Idris was placed on indefinite “pay suspension” by Zainab Ahmed, the minister of finance, budget, and national planning, two days later.
Idris will likely be charged alongside Godfrey Olusegun Akindele, Mohammed Kudu Usman, and a company named Gezawa Commodity Market and Exchange Limited.
The EFCC said Idris and his co-defendants were indicted on a 14-count charge of stealing and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N109.5 billion.
