Nigeria’s accountant-general Ahmed Idris was arrested on Monday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over alleged N80 billion fraud.

EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said Idris was arrested after failing to honour the Commission’s invitations.

“The funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja.”
