The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested Muhammed Audu, son of the late Abubakar Audu, a former governor of Kogi State, for his alleged involvement in an alleged fraud.

A statement by the EFCC’s acting head of media and publicity, Tony Orilade, said the suspect was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly diverting the funds to the tune of several millions of US Dollars and billions of Naira, which were donated to the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, to his personal use.

“Investigations revealed that the suspect allegedly used two of his companies, Mediterranean Hotels Limited and Mediterranean Sports, to divert the funds, which he could not account for,” the statement noted.

The EFCC’s spokesman, therefore, said the suspect would soon be charged to court as soon investigations are concluded.
