The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has begun an investigation of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio; and the acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Prof Kemebradikumo Pondei.

This was made known in an invitation letter signed by the Head, Economic Governance Section, Adebayo Adeniyi, dated August 14, 2020, and addressed to a group, Foundation for True Freedom and Good Governance, led by activist, Deji Adeyanju.

The anti-graft agency revealed that it was probing the NDDC and called on Adeyanju to come to clarify some of the allegations.

“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 wrote.

“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 the third floor.”
