The Director General of the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission, Emeka Mba has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over an alleged N15 billion fraud. He was arrested on Monday morning in Abuja and taken to the EFCC’s headquarters where he is currently being interrogated.
Those familiar with the investigation say the EFCC had been investigating the NBC in the past one month.
Last week, some detectives stormed the headquarters of the NBC, ransacking computers and files in the Finance and Account unit. During the operation, some key Accounts staff where taken away. The arrested officials made confessional statements to the EFCC implicating Mr. Mba and some top officials of the NBC.
