EFCC release suspended AGF Ahmed Idris on Bail

Ahmed Idris

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has granted Ahmed Idris, the suspended Accountant-General of the Federation, bail (EFCC).

Wilson Uwujaren, a spokesman for the EFCC, verified the news to Channels Television.

On May 16, the EFCC arrested Idris for a N80 billion crime.

The EFCC claimed he was arrested after he failed to respond to the commission’s invitations to respond to concerns related to the fraudulent act.

Idris was suspended by the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, after his detention.

The minister announced the suspension in a letter dated May 18, stating that it was necessary to “provide for proper and unfettered investigation into the severe charges in accordance with Public Service Rules 030406.”

Mr Idris is not “expected to attend to your place of work or contact any official in your Office except for any disciplinary hearing that may be suggested,” according to the ministry, during the unpaid suspension time.
