EFCC SET TO DECLARE MODU SHERIFF WANTED

Following his failure to honour the invitation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the anti-graft agency has disclosed that it will, any moment from now, declare former Borno State governor Ali Modu Sheriff wanted over alleged misappropriation, embezzlement of funds and abuse of office while he was governor of the state between 2003 and 2011.

The Commission’s spokesman, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this yesterday during a press conference in Abuja.

According to the anti-graft agency, Modu Sheriff had been summoned to appear before the Commission on Thursday, April 23, at 10am for questioning but he was yet to honour the invitation, hence the Commission is set to exercise one of its options, which is declaring him wanted.

We recall that Sheriff was the governor of Borno State on the platform of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP). It was alleged that part of the N300 billion his administration received from the Federation Account between during the period may not have been judiciously spent.
