Ex-Kwara governor, Ahmed spends SECOND NIGHT with EFCC

The immediate-past governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulfattah Ahmed, has spent a second night in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which is grilling him over alleged N10bn misappropriation.

Ex-Kwara governor, Ahmed spends SECOND NIGHT with EFCC

Ahmed reported on Monday morning at the Ilorin zonal office of the EFCC and was not allowed to return home.

Inquiries by The Punch indicated that the anti-graft agency did not release him on Tuesday.

His Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji AbdulWahab Oba, confirmed his visit to the EFCC office on Monday.

“Dr Ahmed’s visit to the EFCC is procedural and routine. He was invited and he honoured them as he’s always done. He’s always ready to respond to any query or question regarding his tenure as a governor of the state.”

Oba confirmed to The PUNCH on Tuesday night that his principal was still in the EFCC custody.

“Yes, he is still with the EFCC and we are now in a dilemma over the issue because they keep changing the goalpost during the match. The case is taking a new dimension, which we don’t really understand for now.

“Initially they said they wanted him to produce two sureties who are federal directors. The sureties came and were asked to provide landed properties in Abuja. We see this as a contradiction. The case was initially handled by the EFCC office in Abuja before it was transferred to Ilorin over the issue of jurisdiction. Additionally, he has been denied access to his doctors, medication and direct access to his cook,” Oba said.
