The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has quizzed two leading politicians in connection with the $115 million cash disbursed by Fidelity Bank on the instruction of the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison Madueke.

Competent source in the commission confirmed to Vanguard that the duo of Senator Chris Anyanwu and a legal luminary, Mike Ahamba, were quizzed for many hours on Thursday to explain what they did with the N700 million they allegedly received out of the Diezani cash.

The two PDP leaders were reportedly invited to the Enugu Office of the EFCC on Wednesday and questioned by the operatives on the said fund but granted administrative bail and asked to report back the following day for further investigation.

A top source in the commission said that the two politicians who were working for the Peoples Democratic Party at the time, received the N700 million from the Ikenebu Layout Branch of Fidelity Bank in Owerri.
