This Senator Has Been In EFCC's Custody For Days
Perhaps you are wondering the whereabouts of Delta North senator, Peter Nwaboshi, he has been in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the lawmaker is in the custody of the agency but declined to confirm whether he was arrested or he submitted self.
Wilson did not also give reasons why the senator was being held.
The news website, SaharaReporters, reports that Nwaboshi was arrested over the purchase of a building owned by Delta State, “Guinea House” in Lagos state among other corrupt related issues.
Nwaoboshi’s travails with EFCC dates back to 2017 when he was accused of diverting a N1.2 billion loan from NEXIM Bank as a member of its board of directors.
The loan was granted to him by NEXIM Bank under the local industrial growth scheme in 2014.
The money meant for the purchase of equipment and electrical materials was allegedly diverted to acquire properties in Lagos by the Senator.
Earlier in 2017, a Federal High Court in Lagos had ordered the temporary forfeiture of a 12-storey building belonging to the senator over an alleged contract scam of N1.5bn.
