The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday arrested the Speaker of Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Hon, Ogbonnaya Francis Nwaifuru, for allegedly misappropriating N60m constituency project fund.

The said cash was allegedly diverted by the Speaker before his emergence as the head of the State Assembly.

The Speaker is being grilled on how he expended the constituency project cash.

The Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the Ebonyi Speaker was “picked up at about 1100 hours on Friday at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, by operatives of the commission, after he spurned two previous invitations by the agency.”

“The suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded,” Uwujaren said.
