The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the accountant general of Ebonyi State, Mr. Linus Chidi Nwankwo over corruption and fraud in the South Eastern State.
The arrest and detention of the accountant general may be a prelude to the arrest of the former governor of Ebonyi State, Mr. Sam Egwu who was accused by the EFCC of embezzling billions of naira belonging to the state.
An EFCC source told Saharareporters that they are building a solid case against the two-term ex-governor.
Sam Egwu is former president Obasanjo's choice for the position of party chair for the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP). The former governor may soon join his colleagues, former Abia State governor-Orji Kalu and Chimaroke Nnamani (A.K.A Ebeano) in prison custody according to our source at the EFCC.
