The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has commenced interrogation of Paul Orhii, director-general of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) for alleged contract scam and abuse of office.
A source at NAFDAC disclosed to TheCable that the DG arrived at the Wuse, Abuja headquarters of the EFCC at about 9am on Monday in response to an invitation requesting him to present himself to be interviewed by the anti-graft agency.
Although the details of the allegations for which Orhii was invited were still sketchy as of press time, the source disclosed that he learned that the NAFDAC boss is accused of awarding contracts to companies linked with him. He was still being quizzed as at the time of filing this report, amid fears that he might be detained by EFCC.
Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the agency, could not be reached for confirmation, as his phone was switched off.
