EFCC Arraigns Former Kwara Gov Ahmed For Alleged N10bn Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arraigned the immediate past governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed for alleged N10bn fraud.


Recall THE WHISTLER reported last week that a source within the EFCC, hinted that Ahmed was invited for questioning over diversion of funds to the tune of N10bn during his regime.


Ahmed, among sundry issues allegedly spent the sum of N1.6bn meant for the security and administration of the state to charter private jets when he was governor between 2015-2019.


This contravenes Section 15(2)(a) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2011 (As Amended) which is punishable under Section 15 (3) of the same Act.
