EFCC grills Nasarawa ex-Gov, wife over alleged graft

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday evening invited former Governor of Nasarawa State and serving senator, Tanko Al-Makura, and his wife, Mairo, over alleged corruption.

A source at the commission disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday evening, saying that the couple was being grilled by operatives of the anti-graft agency at its headquarters in Abuja.

The source did not give details of the allegation against the ex-governor and his wife; and spokesperson of EFCC, Mr Wilson Uwujaren when contacted by NAN declined comment on the couple’s arrest.

Al-Makura was the Governor of Nasarawa State between 2011 and 2019 before he was elected as Senator representing Nasarawa South Senatorial District at the National Assembly.
