EFCC quizzes NIPC Executive Secretary, Yewande Sadiku, over alleged contract fraud

The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, NIPC, Yewande Sadiku, was interrogated by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over an alleged contract fraud perpetrated in the agency which she heads.

Vanguard reports that the technocrat, who arrived at the headquarters of the anti-graft agency at about 11am on Monday, August 9, was questioned for abuse of office, bordering largely on contract fraud running into several millions of Naira and unearned frivolous allowances.

“She is cooperating with interrogators and has volunteered statement but there is still a lot of grounds to be covered, ” the source said.

When contacted, EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed her presence in the commission but declined further comment.
