Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson for the Commission who confirmed the development on Thursday, said, “The suspended Accountant-General is out on bail. He was released last night.”

THEWILL reported that Idris was apprehended on May 16, after failing to honour invitations by the EFCC, to respond to issues in connection with diversion of funds and money laundering activities to the tune of N80 billion only.

Three days after his arrest, Idris was suspended by the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, to enable him to face his probe.

The anti-graft agency had arrested Idris for over N80 billion fraud and later uncovered another N90 billion, making a total N170 billion, allegedly stolen by Idris within a space of six years.

Idris was said to have opened up on some top government officials allegedly involved in some of the shady transactions. jamb results

The EFCC reportedly grilled a Permanent Secretary, in connection with some deals in which he was implicated, and on Sunday, the anti-graft agency arrested Abdulaziz Yari, a former governor of Zamfara State, as a suspected accomplice.

“So far, the EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa and his team, have made substantial progress. This is one of the biggest scandals that Bawa’s administration has uncovered.

“Based on preliminary investigation, the suspended AGF will account for N170 billion. Detectives are still digging more into his activities while in office.

“Since his arrest on May 16th, he has made useful disclosures including some suspicious accounts and transactions”, a source revealed to the Media.

“As part of his disclosures during the investigation, a Federal Permanent Secretary was invited and interrogated by the EFCC last week.

“The Permanent Secretary is presently on bail and his movement restricted to Abuja. The Permanent Secretary has made a useful statement to investigators.

“A minister was also implicated. We have to verify whether or not the links with the minister were real or maybe the suspect was just desperate to rope in others”, the source added.
