A former Special Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Kingsley Kuku, who was summoned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on allegations of fraud, has said he will not respond immediately to the invitation for health reasons.
Mr. Kuku was directed to appear before a team of interrogators at the EFCC office on Tuesday, July 28 to answer questions on allegation of embezzlement and fraudulent diversion of funds running into hundreds of millions of Naira.
However, Mr. Kuku has informed the EFCC that the earliest possible date he would be available is September 30 as he is currently in the United States for medical care.
A letter by the lawyers to the former Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme to the EFCC said he was undergoing surgery on one of his knees.

“He is expected back in Nigeria at the end of September, 2015 after the surgery and recuperation”, the letter, dated July 24, stated.
The lawyers assured that Mr. Kuku will report to the EFCC as a “law abiding citizen” by 10.am on September 30.
