The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned Ahmed Idris, suspended accountant-general of the federation at a federal capital territory high court, Abuja
DAILY GIST had reported how Idris was arrested in Kano after he failed to respond to invitations by the commission to answer questions over the allegation of N80 billion fraud.
Two days later, Idris was suspended indefinitely “without pay” by Zainab Ahmed, the minister of finance, budget and national planning.
Idris is expected to be arraigned alongside Godfrey Olusegun Akindele and Mohammed Kudu Usman, while a firm — Gezawa Commodity Market and Exchange Limited — is also listed in the charge.
The EFCC said Idris and his co-defendants are indicted on a 14-count charge of stealing and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N109.5 billion.
