The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday, July 31, 2015, invited the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman in Enugu State, Ikeje Asogwa, for questioning over allegation of money laundering.

Asogwa, who served as the Managing Director of the Enugu State Housing Corporation, is currently being interrogated by agents of the anti-graft agency in Abuja.

The suspect arrived the headquarters of EFCC in Abuja by 10.30 a.m. and was still being interrogated as of press time.

Sources at the anti-graft agency explained that Asogwa’s invitation followed the suspicion that Enugu state funds were moved through him, ostensibly for housing development but with no traces of the houses as the funds were believed to have been diverted.

The EFCC had the previous day invited Ifeoma Nwobodo, the former Chief of Staff of  the former governor, Sullivan Chime, over allegations of money laundering and misappropriation of funds and was still in its custody as at press time.
