Ex-AGF, Ahmed Idris

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it has recovered over N30 billion from the suspended Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF), Ahmed Idris.

The EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, disclosed this at a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

The briefing was part of the highlights of the activities of the anti-graft agency for the year 2022.

Speaking on the achievements of the EFCC from January to December 2022, Bawa gave other recoveries to include N134,33,759,574.25, $121,769,076.30, £21,020.00, €156,925.00, and ¥21,350.00, CFA300,000.00, among others.

The EFCC boss disclosed that over 3,615 convictions were recorded within the period, stressing that the commission is serious about its anti-corruption programme.

He announced that the nationwide auction of forfeited automobiles will be followed by the disposal of over 150 houses to interested buyers.

Bawa, however, assured that by the time the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCMUL) becomes fully operational, it will be difficult for money to be laundered in the country.

It would be recalled that the EFCC is currently prosecuting the embattled AGF over alleged N109 billion fraud.

The EFCC alleged that between February and December 2021, Idris accepted from Olusegun Akindele, a gratification of N15.1 billion, which sum was a motive for accelerating the payment of 13 per cent derivation to the nine oil-producing states in the country, through the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation.

The anti-graft agency also alleged that N84.3 billion from the Federal Government’s account was converted by the suspended AGF and Akindele between February and November 2021.

The EFCC said the offence contravenes sections 155 and 315 of the Penal Code Act Cap 532 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.
