Former Special Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Kingsley Kuku, has been invited for questioning by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Kuku and two others were summoned by the EFCC over allegations of embezzlement and fraudulent diversion of funds running into hundreds of millions of Naira.
Kuku was directed to appear before a team of interrogators at the EFCC office on July 28, 2015. The commission had in a letter to Kuku said it is conducting an inquiry into a case of conspiracy, diversion of public funds and abuse of office involving him. The letter read, “The Commission is conducting an inquiry into a case of conspiracy, stealing, diversion of public funds and abuse of office involving you.
“In view of the above, you are kindly requested to be interviewed by the undersigned through Chris Owobu on Tuesday 28th July 2015 at No. 5 Block C Fomella Street, off Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja, at 10 am. Kindly accept the assurances of the Executive Chairman’s best wishes and highest regards, please.”
But his lawyer, Tunyan Karina (SAN), in a letter to the commission said Kuku would not be available for interrogation until September 2015 as he had travelled to the United States for knee surgery.
“Our client is currently in the United States of America to keep appointment with his doctors at the Andrew Sports, Medicine and Orthopaedic Centre for surgery on one of his knees. He is expected back in Nigeria at the end of September, 2015 after the surgery and recuperation. He will definitely report in your office as a law-abiding citizen by 10:00am on 30th of September, 2015,” Karina wrote in his letter to the EFCC.
