Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Senate are planning investigate the alleged misappropriation of N100 billion by former Rivers State Governor Peter Odili, Vanguard reports.
Odili secured a perpetual injunction restraining the EFCC from prosecuting or arresting him but the Senate has moved to amend the EFCC act that will allow the anti-graft agency carry out its duty.
Vanguard reports that Chukwuka Utazi who is the chairman, Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes disclosed this in Port Harcourt when he led other committee members on a surprise oversight visit to the South-South regional office of the anti-graft agency.
The senator revealed that the amendment of the act will upturn the perpetual injunction according to Naij.
