The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it is investigating corruption allegations against Godswill Akpabio, Minister of Niger Delta affairs, and Kemebradikumo Pondei, acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

This was disclosed in a response letter dated August 14 to Foundation for True Freedom and Good Governance, a civil society group, by Adebayo Adeniyi, head of the economic governance section at the anti-graft agency.

“We write to acknowledge the receipt of your petition dated August 3, 2020 in respect of the above subject and to inform you that investigation into the case has commenced,” the EFCC said in the letter.

“In view of the above, you are kindly requested to attend an interview with the undersigned through the O/C team six on Thursday, August 20, 2020 at EFCC headquarters third floor.”

The civil society group, led by Deji Adeyanju, an activist, had asked the EFCC to investigate Akpabio and Pondei over allegations of corruption and diversion of public funds at the NDDC.

The National Assembly had launched a probe into alleged mismanagement of N40 billion by the interim management committee of the NDDC.
