BREAKING: Nigeria’s Accountant-General Suspended Over Alleged N80bn Fraud

Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, has been suspended indefinitely over alleged N80 billion fraud.

Thelagostimes gathered that Idris was suspended by the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, on Wednesday.

In a letter dated May 18, 2022, the minister said the suspension “without pay” was to allow for “proper and unhindered investigation” in line with public service rules.

Recall that the AGF was, on Monday, arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) over alleged diversion and laundering of N80 billion.

EFCC’s spokesman, Wilson Uwajaren, had confirmed Idris’ arrest on Monday.

He noted that Idris was arrested after he failed to honour invitations by the EFCC.
