Akwa Ibom state account frozen by the EFCC


Several media reports confirm that the EFCC froze “all bank accounts” owned by Akwa Ibom State today.

According to Premium Times, the state information commissioner Charles Udoh said that state authorities only learnt of the development today, and there were no prior indications from the anti-graft agency.

Udoh said more information would be provided to Nigerians about the development soon.

The development comes a day after Governor Samuel Ortom raised an alarm that the EFCC froze the state’s bank accounts, trapping workers and pensioners’ salaries in a state beset by hardship following months of deadly attacks by suspected herdsmen.
