JUST IN: Suspended Minister, Betta Edu Arrives EFCC Office



Suspended Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Minister Dr. Betta Edu has arrived at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Headquarters to be grilled over alleged N585 million fraud in her ministry.

Edu, who was suspended on Monday, January 8, by President Bola Tinubu, was accused of paying the humanitarian fund into a private account.

The N585 million was meant for payment of grants to vulnerable groups in Akwa Ibom, Lagos, Cross River and Ogun states.

Edu is the first minister to be suspended from office since members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) were sworn in in August last year.
