EFCC to conclude fraud cases against 17 former governors

07 January 2014, 09:38

Abuja - In a bid to conclude pending cases against  former governors, the Economic and Finincial Crime Commission(EFCC) has made provision for N284.6 million in this year’s estimates to hire competent and reputable lawyers, according to Vanguard.

The Acting Head of the EFCC Wilson Uwujaren lamented that the country lost at least N350 billion to fraud allegedly committed by the suspects, with little progress made after the politicians have been charged to court.

 The former governors being prosecuted include, Orji Kalu, Chimaroke Nnamadi, Attahiru Bafarawa, Adamu Abdullahi, Boni Haruna, Jolly Nyame, Michael Botmang, Saminu Turaki, Joshua Dariye, Ayo Fayose, Danjuma Goje, Akwe Doma, Adebayo Alao-Akala, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Timipre Sylva and Rashidi Ladoja.
