EFCC Grills Ex-Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim


Kingsley Nwezeh in Abuja
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday commenced the interrogation of a former Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, in an alleged case of corruption and diversion of public funds.

Anyim, who arrived the headquarters of the anti-graft agency in Jabi, Abuja at about 3pm yesterday, was still undergoing interrogation by a team of operatives as at the time of filling this report.

Though details of the specific allegations against the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) were sketchy, a source familiar with the case said it may not be unconnected with the corruption and money laundering case involving former Aviation Minister and serving senator, Stella Oduah.

Part of the rehabilitation funds to the tune of N780 million were allegedly traced to a company in which Senator Anyim has interest.
When contacted, EFCC Spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said he was yet to be briefed.
