JUST IN: EFCC Goes After Ex-Gov Chime's Chief Of Staff

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has begun quizzing Chief Mrs. Ifeoma Nwobodo, the former Chief of Staff to Sullivan Chime, the former governor of Enugu State.

This interrogation is seen as preparatory to moving against the former governor.

According to Vanguard report, Nwobodo arrived the EFCC headquarters in Abuja, at about 9.30a.m. on Thursday, July 30, 2015, and was immediately taken to the interrogation room where she was interrogated on issues bordering on misappropriation of public funds.

Nwobodo was said to have been grilled on what she knew about conspiracy and diversion of Enugu state funds by the former governor and his cronies.

A top EFCC official said: “Nwobodo’s invitation is believed to be precursor to the interrogation of her former principal as the agency is said to be flooded with petitions indicting Chime of humongous graft during his eight-year rule of Enugu State as governor from 2007 to 2015.”

She is still being interrogated by a team of crack detectives to determine whether or not to file charges against her, the former governor and his aides named in the petitions.

The spokesperson of the EFCC, confirmed that the former COS to ex-governor Sullivan was being interrogated by operatives of the agency.

It was gathered that the EFCC has been flooded with petitions indicting Chime of huge graft during his eight-year rule as governor of Enugu state from 2007 to 2015.

Some weeks back, Chime had pleaded with those he may have offended in the course of his eight-year stay in office to forgive him.
