Former Governor of Borno State, Ali-Modu Sheriff has handed himself over to the anti-graft commission, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Wednesday over allegations of corruption.
The spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that Mr. Sheriff was currently being held by the commission.
We would remember that the anti-graft agency had on April 23, declared Mr. Sheriff wanted when he failed to honour its invitations for questioning. The former governor, was who summoned by the commission to appear, damned the invitation and stayed away.
Although the specific allegations against the former governor areunclear at this time, sources said the investigation is related to allegations that parts of the N300billion his administration received from the Federation Account between 2003 and 2011 were not judiciously spent.
The investigation began in 2012 and had been ongoing ever since, a source said.
