The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has beamed its light away from the political circle, which the nation has been regaled with, for a while.
This morning the anti graft agency moved into a governmemt parastatal, the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and arrested Emeka Mba, its Director General concerning an alleged N15 billion fraud under his watch.
EFCC said Mba has some questions to answer on the whereabout of over N15 billion.
Mba was arrested on Monday morning in Abuja and taken to the EFCC’s headquarters where he is currently being interrogated.
Compentent sources within EFCC say operatives had been investigating the NBC in the past one month.
Detectives had stormed the headquarters of the NBC, ransacked computers and files in the Finance and Account unit.
During the operation, some key Accounts staff where taken away.
Sources said the arrested officials made confessional statements to the EFCC implicating Mba and some top officials of the NBC.
When contacted, the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was on an official assignment in Lagos and had not been briefed.
But a top official of the anti-graft agency said: “Yes, he (Mba) is with us. We are investigating massive diversion of public funds and we are making progress. Mba definitely has questions to answer.”
