A former governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff, was on Wednesday quizzed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The former governor, who got to the EFCC headquarters in Abuja at 6pm, stayed with the EFCC interrogators till night.
Reports coming from the anti-graft agency say the former governor was being questioned over N300bn his administration received from the Federation Account between 2003 and 2011 when he was the governor of Borno State.
It will be recalled that the EFCC, had in May, threatened that it would declare Modu-Sheriff wanted.
Uwujaren, who said this during a press conference in Abuja, stated that the agency had summoned Modu Sheriff to appear before it on Thursday, April 23, at 10am for questioning, adding that the former governor had yet to honour the invitation.
Uwujaren had stated, “We invited him (Sheriff) for questioning. As I speak to you, he did not honour that invitation. Once the commission invites a suspect in a matter and he fails to honour the invitation, options are opened to us. We might declare him wanted. Yes, we might do that”
