AKWA IBOM ‘FIRST LADY’ FORFEITS SCHOOL TO EFCC OVER ALLEGED N108M FRAUD

 

A school allegedly belonging to former Akw Ibom First Lady, Unoma Akpabio, has been seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

It was learnt that the seizure was part of investigations into her husband, former Governor Godswill Akpabio, who has been accused of alleged N108bn fraud during his tenure from 2007 to 2015.

The school, St. John Paul II School, located in Shelter Afrique Housing Estate, Uyo,  had been marked “under investigation by EFCC.”

It was learnt that the EFCC resorted to marking the school instead of shutting it so that innocent parents and students who had paid school fees would not be adversely affected.

The school, it was learnt, had been under the watchful eyes of the EFCC considering the enormous amount said to have been sunk into its construction.

The spokesman for the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached on the telephone on Wednesday. (Source: The Punch)
