Sen. Anyim Spends Second Night In EFCC Custody Over N780m Fraud

Sen. Anyim Spends Second Night In EFCC Custody Over N780m Fraud | #IgbereTV

A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim, has spent the second night in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abuja, where he was being held since Sunday afternoon in connection with the ongoing probe of a former Aviation Minister, Senator Stella Oduah.

Anyim, who responded to an invitation from the anti-graft agency in respect of a N780 million aviation ministry’s fund, has been held since Sunday afternoon.

Sources said Anyim, who was Senate President between 2000 and 2003, would be released after the investigators are satisfied with his responses to the series of questions put to him in respect to the slush fund.

A senior officer said, “The former SGF is still with us answering some hard questions on how the N780m found its way into his company’s account.

“He is cooperating but we would only release him on bail after he has provided satisfactory answers to our queries.”

The Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, did not respond to calls for detailed update on the case.
