Accounts of INEC chiefs frozen over N23.29b scam

10 May 2016, 17:30

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen the bank accounts of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials implicated in the alleged N23.29billion bribe.

The anti-graft agency had earlier questioned 16 directors of the commission in connection with scandal.

They were alleged to have collected the bribe to alter the results of the 2015 presidential elections won by incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.

It was also gathered that some of the INEC officers implicated in the bribery committed the same offence during the April 25, 2009 Ekiti State governorship rerun.

The EFCC has been probing the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, on her alleged involvement in a $115 2015 poll bribery scandal.
