The EFCC said its investigation revealed that the suspect has severe gambling problem as he spent over N4m placing bets on daily basis with almost nothing to show for it.

It was also discovered that between July and December 2020, the suspect received over N18m from one of the company’s major customers (name withheld) for goods, which were not fully delivered. According to the customer, she is still expecting the balance of goods worth over N8m.

The EFCC said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
