The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has invited Beta Edu, the suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation over the alleged misappropriation of N585M.

This is coming after President Bola Tinubu announced Edu’s suspension from office an hour ago.

Her suspension was disclosed in a statement by the spokesman of the President, Chief Ajuri Ngelale.

Meanwhile, an EFCC source according to PUNCH revealed that the anti-graft agency’s boss, Ola Olukoyede, had earlier recommended the suspension of Beta Edu to make the way for proper investigation.

The source further noted that the commission took action immediately after Tinubu ordered a comprehensive investigation into the alleged payment of N585.189 million grant meant for vulnerable groups in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ogun and Lagos states into a private account.

“We have invited the suspended Minister, Betta Edu. The invitation letter was sent to her immediately after her suspension was announced by the President. We’re are expecting her at the headquarters any moment from now”, the source said.
