ke Ekweremadu, Nigeris’a deputy president of the Senate, is currently at the head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission where he is being detained for “questioning”.
Senator Ekweremadu reportedly arrived at the anti-graft agency’s office in Abuja around 9am on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
“He is currently at the interrogation room,” the newspaper quoted a source as saying.
“We have some questions for him bordering on corruption but we do not know yet when he would be released, we will know this by 5pm.”
The development comes less than 24 hours after the deputy senate president said his hands were clean.
Last week, EFCC operatives laid a siege to his residence, preventing him from going to the national assembly.
