EFCC Pledges Thorough Investigation On Fraud Allegations.

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has pledged to conduct a thorough investigation into the corruption allegations against the Minister of State for Defence, Bello Matawalle.

Spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Dele Oyewale, gave this assurance in a statement on Wednesday during an interface at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja between the EFCC and members of the Tinubu Youth and Women Network, a political pressure group that has been advocating for an investigation into Matawalle’s alleged corruption.

Matawalle is being investigated over allegations of mismanagement of public funds and resources during his tenure as the Governor of Zamfara State from 2019 to 2023.

Recall that the EFCC had announced in May 2023 that it was investigating Matawalle over allegations of massive corruption, award of fictitious contracts, and diversion of over N70 billion.
