ali modu sheriff

Investigations have commenced into allegations of fraud by the former governor of Borno state, Ali Modu-Sheriff.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said it is looking at claims that over  N300bn received by the state during the 8-year-tenure of the former governor was misappropriated and misapplied.

Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff was a guest at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja between 6 to 10pm on Wednesday and released to appear again on Thursday.

The EFCC also in another development dismissed claims that it had dropped charges against former governor of Bayelsa state, Timipre Sylva.

Spokesman to the commission, Wilson Uwajuren, told HOMELAND NEWS that the charges were only consolidated and are still pending before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

He stressed that the reports which claimed the EFCC has dropped the former governor’s charges were frivolous and untrue.
