EFCC Goes After Suspended Betta Edu

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, has been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to visit its headquarters in Jabi, Abuja, about an alleged N585 million fraud.
 
Less than an hour passed when President Bola Tinubu announced Edu’sremoval from office via Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Advisor to the President on Media and Publicity.

According to a reliable source within the EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, the chairman of the anti-graft agency, has previously suggested to the President that the Minister be suspended in order to allow for a thorough investigation.

The source further noted that the commission swung into action immediately after the President ordered a thorough investigation into the alleged payment of N585.189 million grant meant for vulnerable groups in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ogun and Lagos states into a private account.

 

“We have invited the suspended Minister, Betta Edu. The invitation letter was sent to her immediately after her suspension was announced by the President. We’re expecting her at the headquarters any moment from now,” the source noted.
