EFCC quizzes ex-Gov Dickson


Bayelsa Governor and senator representing Bayesla West Seriake Dickson on Tuesday was subjected to interrogation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Dickson, according to report, was at EFCC headquarters in Abuja at the instance of the anti-graft agency where officials grilled him over allegations bordering on abuse of office and misappropriation of public funds during his time as Bayelsa State governor between 2012 and 2020.

The senator was said to have arrived at the Jabi office around 11.00am where he was quizzed by detectives for hours.

As of press time, it is sketchy whether the ex-governor is still in the custody of the EFCC and would sleep over or he was asked to go and report another day.
