The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may have opened investigations into activities of some serving ministers in the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

Investigation revealed that operatives involved in the discreet probe had gathered some evidence against the affected ministers.

A top operative of the EFCC said investigations on two of the ministers had got to an advanced level.
It was learnt that one of the ministers is from the South-West while the other is from the South-East. But both ministers have not been invited for interrogation.

The source said, “The commission has commenced investigations into alleged corrupt practices by some serving ministers. In fact, the cases against the two of them have got to an advanced stage. One of them is from the South-West while the other is from the South-East.

“The one from the South-West is under probe for alleged questionable award of licenses to firms which involved billions of Naira. His counterpart has a different case.

But in a swift response, the Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said he was not aware of the investigation. (Culled from The Punch)
