The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has discovered N2.5b in a bank account belonging to the housemaid of an ex minister.

Daily Post reports that the former female minister used the housemaid’s bank account to cover up her fraudulent activities.

According to an EFCC source, “Our findings indicated that the ex-female minister opened an account in the name of her housemaid and with her photograph. But the signature in the account is that of the ex-minister.

“At the time we made the discovery, over N2.5billion was in the account. But the volume of transactions in the account has been huge.

“We are suspecting that the ex-minister did not put the housemaid in the picture of what she wanted to do with her passport photograph.

“We have established that the ex-minister has been drawing funds from the said account. We have retrieved records of all transactions by the ex-Minister. We will soon bring her to justice no matter how long it takes to follow due process.”

The bank account of the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose was placed under restriction by the EFCC on Monday, June 20, 2016.
