A former Secretary to the government of the Federation, SGF, Anyim Pius Anyim has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC).
Anyim is currently in Detention where he is being interrogated by officials of the anti-graft commission. The ex-SGF was picked up on Thursday over alleged fraud involving the centenary city in Abuja.
It will be recalled that the House of Representatives had recently recommended the prosecution of Anyim over his involvement in the Centenary city project.
The house of Reps reported that Anyim and his associates flouted existing laws guiding the Abuja land swap policy for personal gains.The project in question, which cost over $18 billion, had Anyim as a major driver.
In February, Anyi, accused Herman Hembe, the committee’s chairman, of “deep-seated personal bias” during an appearance before the house.
