EFCC Interrogates Former Minister Sadiya Over Alleged N37 Billion Money Laundering

In a recent development, detectives from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have spent hours grilling the former Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, Sadiya Umar-Farouq, regarding her alleged involvement in the ongoing money laundering case.

The immediate past minister is facing accusations of channeling the funds through a contractor named James Okwete.

However, in adherence to the new policy of the commission, Sadiya was released on bail and is expected to undergo further interrogation today.

Sources indicate that the ex-minister appeared for questioning. Despite initially requesting a three-week grace period before responding to the EFCC’s invitation, she was granted only three days by the agency.

To avoid potential repercussions, the former Minister reported to the EFCC’s headquarters, preventing any declaration of her as wanted.

In a statement aimed at instilling confidence, Sadiya tweeted, “I have, at my behest, arrived at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to honor the invitation by the anti-graft agency to offer clarifications in respect of some issues that the commission is investigating.”

The ongoing investigation marks another high-profile case in the EFCC’s efforts to combat corruption in the country.
