The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) yesterday arrested the serving Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris over alleged diversion of public funds and money laundering activities to the tune of N80 billion Naira.

This latest development was contained in a release signed by the media head and publicity of the Commission and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

An intelligence report verified by the commission revealed that the Accountant General of the Federation raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates.

The funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano state and federal capital territory(FCT) Abuja.

Reports say Idris was arrested after his failure to honour invitations by the EFCC to respond to his alleged connection with the fraudulent acts.
