Accountant-General of the Federation (AG-F) Ahmed Idris has been relocated from Kano to Abuja in continuation of the ongoing investigation of an alleged N80 billion ‘fraud.’

He was moved yesterday to Abuja where he allegedly committed some financial infractions.

It was learnt last night that the anti-graft agency has invited some relations of Idris and consultants whose firms were believed to have been used for some curious transactions.

EFCC has been working on clues that the consultancy jobs were allegedly used by the AG-F to launder funds.

A source said: “The commission has moved the AG-F from Kano to Abuja for interrogation. He is already cooperating with our detectives.

“So far, he is still in custody because EFCC has invited some of his relations and consultants who allegedly executed some questionable or non-existent contracts.

“The commission will brief the nation appropriately after our findings.”
