The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has again invited a former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, over an allegation of abuse of office and misappropriation of billions of naira.
The anti-graft agency had invited Mr Akpabio to appear for questioning on March 29 but his lawyer, Umeh Kalu, said the minister could not honour the invitation due to ill health.
In a letter dated March 27 to the EFCC, the lawyer said his client was suffering from pneumonia and cardiac arrhythmia, hence won’t be available on the requested date.
But in another letter, sighted by our correspondent on Friday, the commission asked Mr Akpabio, who is also a senator-elect and top contender for the seat of Senate president, to appear at its headquarters in Abuja on May 9, 2023.
The letter, which was dated April 13, 2023, was addressed to Mr Akpabio’s lawyers, Seasons Law Firm, Abuja, and signed by ACE II SM Ala, Head, CMU-1.
The letter reads, “I refer to your letter number dated March 27, 2023 on the above subject. In view of the above, you are kindly requested to inform your client Senator Godswill Akpabio, to personally report for an interview with the undersigned through the Head, CMU-1 team, on 9th May, 2023, at 5th Floor, EFCC Headquarters Plot 301/302 Institutions and Research District. Jabi, Abuja, at 10:00 a.m”.
