Alleged N2.5bn fraud: EFCC invites 13 more top officers of NEMA

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited 13 more top officers of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) for questioning over alleged N2.5billion scandal in the agency.

The development has made the list of those implicated in the fraud to 20 because the anti-graft commission had earlier quizzed a former Director-General and six serving directors of the agency.

The Board of the NEMA, headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, had suspended the six directors based on an interim report from the EFCC.

It was, however, learnt that some of those fingered in the looting of the NEMA accounted for the ongoing ‘war’ against the current DG of the NEMA, Engr. Mustapha Maihaja.
