ENUGU NIGERIA, AFRICAN EXAMINER – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday continued its interrogation of the immediate past Governor of Enugu State, Barrister Sullivan Chime, over his alleged involvement in the $115m (N23bn) allegedly disbursed by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, during the 2015 presidential election.
It was the second time in a week, the ex- Governor is keeping appointment with the anti- graft agency.
It would be recalled former Governor Chime had been questioned by officials of the EFCC at its South-East Zonal office in Enugu last week Wednesday.
Sources close to the agency hinted that the questions being directed at Chime were centred on how he handled the N450 million he received from Mrs Alison-Madueke.
Aside Chime, other notable stalwarts of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) such as the former Chairman, Ikeje Asogwa, the chairman of the party’s 2015 campaign organization, Chief Charles Egumgbe have been the visitors at the EFCC’s office in connection to the disbursed sum.
Secretary of the 2015 Governorship Campaign organization and Commissioner under Chime, Rita Mbah, who was listed among those to be questioned by the agency, was however, not sighted at the commission’s South East office.
Chime arrived the EFCC zonal office Monday in a black Ford Sports Utility vehicle SUV with Enugu registration number, CV 950 ENU, at about 10:58 am, and left about 13 minutes later.
Same way his other colleagues, Asogwa and Egumgbe left separately later.
Neither Chime nor Asogwa agreed to speak with newsmen.
