EFCC grills Anyim Pius Anyim, Secretary to Government of Federation under President Jonathan

ABUJA – Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) under President Goodluck Jonathan and former Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, is currently being grilled by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

A senior official of the commission said Senator Anyim was invited as part of an investigation in a case of alleged corruption and diversion of public funds.

Anyim, who arrived at the headquarters of the anti-graft agency in Jabi, Abuja at about 3pm, is currently being grilled by a team of operatives.

Though details of the specific allegations against the former SGF were sketchy as of this time, a source familiar with the case informed that it is tied to the corruption and money laundering case involving a former Aviation Minister and serving Senator, Senator Stella Oduah.

Part of the rehabilitation funds to the tune of N780 million were allegedly traced to a company in which Senator Anyim has an interest.

When contacted, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said he has not been briefed.
