EFCC Arrests NDDC’s Account Director, Mr Eno Ubi-Otu, Over N25bn Fraud

The Director, Finance and Account of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr. Eno Ubi Otu, is currently being grilled by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). (Read More Here).

A competent source within the commission, who did not want his name in print because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, confirmed the development to our correspondent.

Otu was said to have arrived the headquarters of the commission in the morning on  Wednesday  but was still being grilled by the anti-graft agency as of 8.45 pm.

Our correspondent gathered that he was being grilled in relation to a case of alleged diversion of over N25bn tax remittances.

Spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached on the telephone for details of the arrest as of the time of filing this report.

Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s spokesperson, did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on the arrest.

In 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered a forensic audit of the NDDC’s operations from 2001 to 2019.

While receiving the audit report, Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, said the federal government was concerned about the way funds have been spent on the region, adding that “approximately N6 trillion” was given to the commission within the period under review.
