EFCC Probes Godswill Akpabio

Akpabio eThe Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has reportedly started a fresh probe of the ex-governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, over an alleged N1.4billion gift to a bank .

The EFCC, it was also reported, had written to the bank to explain why the governor allegedly gave it such a present.

An EFCC detective was quoted as saying, “Among several allegations that are already in the public domain, the commission has made some progress in investigating the circumstances in which Apkabio, in 2013, paid N566, 883,728.66; N441,808,081.90; and N392, 631,943.37 as gifts to a new generation bank.”

In a counter effort, the Akwa Ibom State Government had dragged the anti-graft commission before the court, tackling its right to investigate state affairs.
