EFCC grills Ex-PDP chairman and former Borno gov, Ali Modu Sheriff



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday grilled a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff.

The former Borno State Governor arrived the agency’s office following an earlier invitation from the anti-graft commission.

It was also learnt that the sessions lasted for few hours following which Sheriff left the EFCC’s premises.

In a chat with Daily Trust, EFCC’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the ex-PDP chairman was in its office earlier today to honour an invitation sent to him.

He confirmed that Sheriff was questioned by officials of the agency but didn’t disclose why he was invited and grilled.

It will be recalled that the PDP chieftain was arrested in June 2015 over alleged corruption charges.

Sheriff was arrested by the commission then for alleged embezzlement of public funds during his eight years as governor of Borno State but was later granted bail same year.

His government was said to have received over N300billion from the Federation Account between 2003 and 2011, an amount alleged to have been mismanaged by Sheriff.

The ex-governor of Borno State was subsequently detained from June 3 to June 4, 2015 and released on administrative bail without being charged to court.
