Akpabio returns to EFCC

In from Timothy Enietan-Matthews (Nation’s capital) . . . 

The embattled former governor of Akwa Ibom State and Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, was again, a guest of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as he returned to the anti graft agency on Saturday for further interrogation.

Akpabio reportedly returned to the EFCC headquarters at 10am Saturday, after he was released to go home Friday night.

The former governor was invited by the EFCC on Friday for questioning in connection with a petition written to the commission by an Abuja based activist, Leo Ekpenyong, accusing him of looting about N108 billon from the state’s treasury while he presided over the affairs of Akwa Ibom State as governor.

However, the Senate Minority Leader, after his release on Friday by the EFCC, insisted he has nothing to hide and that he was never arrested but only invited by the anti-graft body.

It is however not clear if he will be allowed to go home today as he is still being interrogated as at the time of this report.
