N109bn Fraud: Court Remands Ex-AGF Idris, Others

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Friday, remanded the embattled former Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris and two others over alleged complicity in the illegal diversion of public funds to the tune of about N109.4 billion.

The presiding judge, Justice J. O. Adeyemi-Ajayi ruled that the three suspects should be remanded in prison.

Idris, Godfrey Olusegun Akindele and Mohammed Kudu Usman pleaded not guilty to a 14-count charge in which they are accused of diverting about N109billion public funds.

In May, Idris was arrested in Kano after he failed to honour the invitations of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to answer questions over the alleged N80 billion fraud.

Two days later, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, announced Idris’ indefinite suspension.
