The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday invited Ali Modu-Sheriff,  ex-governor of Borno State and immediate past  national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for questioning.

A well-placed source who disclosed this Independent said at the anti-graft agency in Borno State has invited Ali Modu-Sheriff.

Although the source did not the offence for which   Modu-Sheriff was invited, Independent gathered it may be   in connection with the 2015 PDP presidential campaign funds, for which Femi Fani-Kayode, former aviation minister, is being investigated.

This is the second time in June that  the former PDP chairman  is being  invited by the EFCC, after turning himself to the agency earlier in the month, in connection with alleged misappropriation of parts of the N300billion

Borno State received from the federation account while he was governor between 2003 and 2011.

The EFCC invitation is coming just as  Modu-Sheriff is facing stiff opposition from some leaders of his party.
