Theft and money laundering – EFFC detains Abia state INEC resident officer over alleged N20m cash gift from Dieziani Alison Madueke

In the pursuit to get back all stolen funds into their rightful place in Nigeria the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) further into its investigation, had yesterday detained the Abia State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Sylvester Ezeani, for allegedly collecting N20 million cash gift from former Minister of Petroleum resources, Dieziani Alison Madueke.

EFCC operatives believe the money was handed over to Ezeani while he was the resident Officer in Cross Rivers state to influence the outcome of the 2015 Presidential election in favour of PDP.

Having failed to tell the EFCC operatives what the N20 million cash gift he received from Diezani was meant for, Ezeani was detained and will be further interrogated today July 20th.
