Access bank MD released by EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is leaving no stone unturned in its quest to investigate the activities of the last administration.

On Friday May 6th, officials of EFCC visited the headquarters of Access Bank Plc seeking clarification from the bank's officials. The Commission invited Herbert Wigwe - Managing Director of the bank for questioning and released him after a couple of hours.

It is back to business as usual in the bank and activities have continued without any disruptions.

The EFCC had taken its investigation into the arms procurement scandal further to the 2015 presidential campaign funds of former President Goodluck Jonathan, with the fresh move a result of alleged discoveries that more party members received funds from the office of the National Security Adviser, specifically for the party's presidential campaign.
