The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday questioned a former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Chibudom Nwuche, over an alleged N5.6bn scam.

A top EFCC source said the former lawmaker, who responded to an invitation at about 11am, was still being quizzed at the time of filing this report yesterday.

Sources at the agency disclosed that Nwuche was grilled over a N5.6bn contract which his company, Foundation For Youth Development, allegedly received from the Kingsley Kuku-led Presidential Amnesty Office.

 He was further alleged to have secured three contracts from the amnesty office in 2012 for the training of ex-militants in Malaysia, but did nothing about the contract, even after collecting N2.8bn.

“The money was allegedly laundered through some companies, individuals and Bureau De Change operators back to Kuku through a front who is also being investigated by the EFCC,” the EFCC source said.
