100bn: EFCC goes after ex-governor Peter Odili

28 November 2016, 17:33

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.

Odili who served as governor of Rivers State between 1999 and 2007 was accused of misappropriating N100 billion.
