    The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday, commenced interrogation of a former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim, in a case of alleged corruption and diversion of public funds.

    Anyim arrived at the headquarters of the anti-graft agency in Jabi, Abuja, at about 3:00 p.m. and was grilled by a team of operatives.

    Details of the specific allegations against the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation were sketchy as of press time. 

    However, a source familiar with the case informed The Guardian that it is tied to the corruption and money laundering case involving former Aviation Minister and serving senator, Stella Oduah.

    Rehabilitation funds worth N780 million were allegedly traced to a company in which Anyim has an interest.

    When contacted, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said he had not been briefed. 

    The Guardian could not confirm whether the former Senate President would spend the night at the commission.
