The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it has flagged a Northern Governor for personally withdrawing cash of N60 billion from his state treasury.
The EFCC, which broke the story today in its latest EFCC Alert, said the governor is from the North Central part of the country but didn’t give his name, Vanguard reports.
The EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who spoke in the latest edition of the magazine said: “I can tell you for free that the new Department of Intelligence that we have created is working wonders.
“They have come up with a lot of intelligence. In one of them, a governor in a North-Central state within the last six years (one individual) has withdrawn over N60 billion in cash.
”We are looking at all of that, and I assure you that at the end of all of our investigations, Nigerians are going to be briefed of what we are doing behind the scene on cybercrime, politically exposed persons as well as engaging government agencies to ensure that we have better processes and procedures on how to do government business,” Bawa said.
