The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Monday, questioned the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mr. Bala Mohammed, over suspected multiple criminal breaches while in office, offences that may likely land him in court.
Sources say that Bala Mohammed, who reported to the commission’s headquarters in Abuja around 10: 30 am on Monday, would be detained and questioned extensively in connection with questionable schemes and projects undertaken by him when he held sway as FCT Minister between 2011 and 2015.
The detention and interrogation of Mohammed, according to sources, followed series of petitions filed against him by individuals and group since 2013. A top source in the commission, who did not want to be named, told Vanguard that the former minister was confronted by EFCC operatives with evidence of sleaze and demanded answers from him.
