EFCC Interrogates Former Kogi Governor Idris Wada

Idris Wada, former governor of Kogi state, is now at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.

Wada who was said to have received about N500 million was grilled for about seven and a half hours on Monday at the commission's headquarters in Abuja, while Danladi was said to have collected N450 million on behalf of his state.

The former Kogi governor was quizzed into the night and one top source in EFCC said that it was unlikely that the former governor would be released Monday night.

The money was said to be part of the N23bn allegedly disbursed by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, through the then Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Senator Nenadi Usman.

The EFCC said it had traced N860m to the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada, and a former acting governor of Taraba State, Sani Danladi.

The commission in a statement in the early hours of Tuesday, stated that Danladi was quizzed at its Gombe zonal office for allegedly receiving N450 million of the Diezani polls bribe money through Senators Joel Dallami Ikenya and Hon.

Danladi was said to have told interrogators that he chaired the 8-man committee that disbursed the money for Taraba State.

He was still being interrogated at the time of filing this report last night.

Also, a former deputy governor of Edo State, Chief Lucky Imasuen, and a former Secretary to the State Government of Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, may be re-invited for allegedly collecting N700m from the Diezani fund.

Last week, the commission detained a former governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, for his role in the disbursement of the Diezani sleaze.
