EFCC operatives quiz Adamawa govt officials

By Umar Yusuf

YOLA—Four top  officials of Adamawa State government are being interrogated by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Sources revealed that the operatives moved into the state from their Zonal office in Gombe State for routine duties since Wednesday last week, drilling the officials.

Sources at Government House, Yola, who pleaded anonymity, told Vanguard, yesterday, that the EFCC operatives were acting on a petition written against some of the officials for alleged multi-million Naira contract scam in some major contracts undertaken by the present administration in the state.

The sources added that after the drilling by the EFCC operatives, the suspects were granted bail and asked to report to the EFCC zonal office in Gombe this week.

The EFCC spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, when contacted on the matter, said he will verify from Gombe Zonal Office and get back to Vanguard, which he had not done at press time.

However, a source at the EFCC office in Gombe said their operatives were still in Adamawa State for official duties.
