By Matthew Eloyi

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Sunday, commenced interrogation of a former Senate President, Pius Anyim, in a case of corruption and diversion of public funds.

Anyim who was Senate President between 2000 and 2003, was appointed by then-President Goodluck Jonathan as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in 2011, a position the 60-year-old held till 2015.

Our reporter was informed by EFCC sources with direct knowledge of the case against him that Mr Anyim arrived at the headquarters of the commission in Abuja at about 3 p.m. on Sunday.

As of the time of filing this report, Anyim was said to still be facing interrogation by operatives of the anti-graft agency.

Though details of the specific allegations against Ayim were sketchy as of press time, sources said they are related to the case involving the incumbent Anambra North senator, Stella Oduah.

Oduah also served as the Minister of Aviation under the Goodluck Jonathan administration from 2011 until 2014 when he was sacked based on a contract scam involving the purchase of BMW armoured cars.

She, according to EFCC sources, is being investigated for rehabilitation fund to the tune of N780 million allegedly diverted to a company in which the former Senate President had an interest.
