Akinwale's announcement by the anti-graft agency comes shortly after it declared Olu Agunloye, a former minister of power and steel under the administration of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, for fraud allegation.

Obasanjo's ex-minister in EFCC's wanted list

Agunloye, who served as a minister from 1999 to 2007, has been summoned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for questioning related to the $6 billion Mambila hydropower contract.

This development stems from allegations made by former President Obasanjo, who accused Agunloye of mismanagement during his tenure and claimed that the minister did not provide updates on the project.

In an interview, Obasanjo further accused Agunloye of fraudulently approving the contract for the power project with the Federal Executive Council's (FEC) consent.

The former president urged Agunloye to clarify how he obtained the authority to award a $6 billion contract to Sunrise Power and Transmission for the Mambila hydropower project.
