Former Borno State Governor, Modu Sherif, may have courted the wrath of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by refusing to heed the anti-graft agency’s invitation.

Already, the EFCC is threatening to declare the former governor wanted in the next few days.

Spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, who disclosed this during a media briefing in Abuja on Monday stated that the former governor had refused to respond to an invitation extended to him by the agency.

According to Uwujaren: “The latest about Modu Sherif is that we invited him for questioning, but as I speak to you, I am not sure he honoured that invitation and once the commission invited a suspect and he failed to honour the invitation, options are open to us. We might declare him wanted.”
