The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has questioned Director-General of the National Agency for Food, Drugs Administration And Control, NAFDAC, Dr. Paul Orhi on corruption allegations.
Dr. Orhi was grilled by a crack team of detectives for allegedly awarding huge contracts to companies where he has interests.
Vanguard quoted an anonymous EFCC source that the DG, who arrived the commission’s headquarters around 10am Monday had been making useful statement to its agents.
The source said: “It is true that the NAFDAC head was summoned by us and he is currently being quizzed in relation to allegations that he has been awarding contracts running into millions of Naira to companies close to him.
It was not clear if he had been released as at press time but the source said he had no idea but that doing so might depend on whether the operatives were satisfied with his answers to issues raised against him.
