The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has detained Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, for alleged fraud and failing to explain how he came to own 22 properties in Nigeria, the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.

Ekweremadu arrived at the office of the EFCC earlier today on the invitation of the anti-graft body, and it’s not known yet when he will be released as he is said to be undergoing interrogation by the officials of the agency.

The EFCC had earlier sent an invitation to the deputy senate president for questioning over an alleged case of conspiracy, abuse of office and money laundering including his failure to declare the 22 properties in his Asset Declaration Form at the Code of Conduct Bureau.

Ekweremadu has also come under the scrutiny of the EFCC following allegations of alleged forgery of Senate standing rules which led to the controversial election of principal officers of the Senate in June 2015.
