The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday invited former Governor of Ebonyi State, Martin Elechi, for questioning. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted a source at the EFCC in Abuja, who claimed that Elechi arrived at the commission’s office at 10am. Reports said that the former governor was at the commission’s office to honour the invitation by EFCC. The EFCC had also invited the former governor’s son, Nnanna Elechi, on January 29, 2015 for interrogation. Elechi served as governor of Ebonyi State for two terms and left office on May 29, 2015. He could not face the anti-graft agency earlier since he had constitutional immunity against prosecution. Spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the development to newsmen in Abuja but did not elaborate on the issue.
