EFCC Grills Ex- SGF, Anyim
A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, is currently being grilled by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A senior official of the commission told Daily Trust that Anyim was invited as part of an investigation in a case of alleged corruption and diversion of public funds.
Anyim, who arrived at the headquarters of the anti-graft agency in Jabi, Abuja at about 3pm, is currently being grilled by a team of operatives.
Though details of the specific allegations against the former SGF were sketchy as of this time, a source familiar with the case informed that it is tied to the corruption and money laundering case involving a former Aviation Minister and serving senator, Senator Stella Oduah.
Part of the rehabilitation funds to the tune of N780 million were allegedly traced to a company in which Senator Anyim has an interest.
When contacted, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said he has not been briefed.
