The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has detained Ahmed Idris, Nigeria's Accountant General of the Federation.



Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC's Head of Media, made the announcement on Monday.

According to the spokesman, Idris was apprehended by EFCC agents for alleged enormous fraud.

The top officer is accused of money laundering and diversion of cash totaling N80 billion.

Uwujaren stated that the panel took action against Idris based on verifiable intelligence.

He is said to have “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, the EFCC added.

Idris was nabbed after failing to honour invitations to respond to issues connected to the alleged fraudulent acts.
