N37.1 Billion Probe: Buhari's Ex-minister begs EFCC for more time

The immediate-past Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar-Farouk, has officially written to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission seeking an extension of the deadline to meet with the commission’s interrogators over an ongoing probe into the N37.1bn allegedly laundered during her tenure in office through a contractor, James Okwete.

Umar-Farouk in her letter cited health challenges as her reason for her plea.

The PUNCH had earlier exclusively reported that the ex-minister risked arrest after failing to appear before interrogators at the EFCC Headquarters on Wednesday.
