The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has confirmed the arrest of former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Sen. Anyim Pius Anyim, over alleged mismanagement of ecological fund while in office.
Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed this to pressmen on Friday night, in Abuja.
Recall that while serving as SGF in 2012, under Goodluck Jonathan administration, Mr. Anyim was linked to shortfalls of about N396 billion in the Ecological Funds deductions.
Subsequently, he was invited by the Senate Committee on Special Duties and House Committee on Environment to provide details of how money for the Ecological Fund office was spent but he never showed up in any of the committees.
