Ex-Kwara governor Ahmed in EFCC custody over ‘misappropriation of N3bn’

Abdulfatah Ahmed, a former governor of Kwara state, is currently under interrogaton at the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The former Kwara governor arrived at the EFCC zonal office in Ilorin, the state capital, on Monday morning.

Ahmed is being questioned by the anti-graft agency over the sum of N3 billion spent during his administration.

Ahmed was the governor of Kwara between 2011 and 2019.

Before he became governor, he served as commissioner for finance in the administration of Bukola Saraki, his predecessor.

This is the third time Ahmed would be invited by the anti-graft agency since he left office in 2019.

In May 2021, he was grilled at the EFCC’s headquarters in Abuja over allegations of fraud.

In December 2020, he was at the commission’s office in Ilorin to clarify certain transactions and decisions he took as governor.
