The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is interrogating a former Governor of Kwara state, Mr Abdulfatah Ahmed over transactions running into billions of Naira.

The transactions were said to have been made during his tenure as a governor and as a commissioner during the administration of his predecessor, Dr Bukola Saraki.

An official of the EFCC confirmed this to TVC NEWS.

He had earlier been invited in May 2021, when he was questioned by a crack team of operatives at the EFCC headquarters in the Jabi area of Abuja in connection with the alleged misappropriation of funds to the tune of about N9 billion from the purse of the Kwara State Government.
