N80bn fraud: About 17 houses in London, Lagos, Kano, Abuja and Dubai have been traced to him


At least 17 properties including 17 houses in London, Lagos, Kano, Abuja and Dubai have been linked to the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

This comes as Zainab Ahmed, the Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, has suspended Idris, who is being investigated for N80 billion in fraud.

The properties related to Idris are located in Kano, Lagos, Abuja, Dubai, and London, according to an EFCC employee who requested anonymity.

The EFCC announced on Monday that the accountant-general had been arrested for N80 billion in fraud.

"The commission's verified intelligence showed that the AGF raked in the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members, and close associates," the statement read in part. Real estate investments in Kano and Abuja were used to launder the proceeds."

Meanwhile, the Federal Government said on Wednesday that the accountant-general will be suspended to allow for a smooth investigation.

The Minister of Finance ordered Idris not to enter the office at any moment in a letter communicating his suspension, noting that the suspension was in accordance with public service standards.

"Following your recent detention by the EFCC on charges of diversion of funds and money laundering, I write to express your suspension from employment without pay effective May 18, 2022," the letter said in part.

Efforts to reach the EFCC's spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, were unsuccessful since he did not return calls.
