Ekweremadu Sweats in EFCC Net

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, was on Tuesday interrogated by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at its Abuja head offices.

This was confirmed by EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, who said Ekweremadu honoured an invitation by the Commission extended to him about seven days ago.

The embattled Deputy Senate President was being grilled over allegations of alleged financial crimes and it is not yet certain if he would be given bail to go home today.

Ekweremadu on July 24th did not honour an invitation from the EFCC to answer questions over corruption allegations after his home, along with that of Senate President Bukola Saraki was invaded by a joint team of security operatives.

A letter from the EFCC to Ekweremadu noted that, “This commission is investigating the above mentioned case in which your name features prominently and the need to obtain certain clarification from you became imperative.”

The Enugu State lawmaker had described the charges against him as being politically motivated.
