Suspended minister to report at EFCC Tuesday

By Nudoiba Ojen

The suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, has been mandated to report at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Jabi, Abuja on Tuesday, January 9.

Edu was suspended by President Bola Tinubu on Monday over alleged N585m scandal.

An EFCC source said that the minister was invited by the agency in compliance with Tinubu’s order that a comprehensive investigation encompassing her activities in the ministry be carried out.

A senior EFCC official said, “Betta Edu has been mandated to report to the commission (EFCC) tomorrow, Tuesday.”

Recall that Edu’s predecessor, Sadiya Farouq, is still being questioned by EFCC interrogators as of 6.40pm on Monday, over allegations that she laundered N37.1 billion while serving as a minister in former President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet.
