Former governor of Kwara State, Alh Abdulfatah Ahmed, has denied media reports that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over N9billion transaction.
Ahmed, who was the guest of the anti- graft agency in Abuja on Monday, insisted that he was not arrested by the agency, rather honoured an invitation extended to him by the antI-graft agency EFCC.
The former Governor via his verified twitter handle on Tuesday, wrote that he was only questioned on a complaint about a contract awarded by the state government when he was the Commissioner for Finance under ex governor Abubakar Bukola Saraki served as the state governor between 2003 and 2011.
The tweets read: “In response to an invitation by the commission via a letter dated 26th April 2021, I voluntarily visited the EFCC in Abuja yesterday (Monday) with regard to a complaint about a contract awarded by Kwara State government while I was the state Commissioner for Finance.
“I was not accused of any wrongdoing. Neither was I questioned on any N9bn transaction. I have since been granted bail.”
