The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday interrogated former governor of Kwara State Abdulfatah Ahmed over his stewardship while he was the state’s chief executive.

Ahmed was questioned at the Ilorin office of the anti-graft agency.

However, the former governor, in a statement by his chief press secretary Abdulwahab Oba, disclosed that he only honoured an invitation by the anti-graft agency.

“Dr Ahmed’s visit to the EFCC is procedural and routine. He was invited, and he honoured them as he’s always done.

“He’s always ready to respond to any query or question regarding his tenure as governor of the state.

“So, there’s nothing unusual about the invitation and his honouring the anti-graft agency,” the statement said.

In May 2021, Ahmed was quizzed at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja over the alleged diversion of cash totalling around N9 billion from Kwara State’s coffers.
