‘Suspended’ NSIPA coordinator, Halima Shehu, in EFCC custody

Shehu, who was said to have been purportedly suspended by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Tuesday, though there is no official statement to that effect, was said to have been taken to EFCC headquarters at Jabi, Abuja, by operatives of the anti-graft commission Tuesday evening.

A reliable source at the commission disclosed that operatives had stormed her office at Maitama, Abuja, to conduct a search after which she was asked to follow them to the EFCC headquarters where she was subsequently detained for questioning.

The source, who preferred to be anonymous, informed that the detention of the NSIPA boss might not be unconnected with the ongoing investigation of the immediate past Minister of Humanitarian and Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajia Sadiyya Umar Farouq.
