A former Minister of Works, Chief Adeseye Ogunlewe, was on Wednesday invited by the operatives of the EFCC for interrogation on alleged corrupt practices, an official said.

Ogunlewe, who is the current Pro-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, came to the Ibadan Zonal Office of the anti-graft agency for questioning.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) learnt that his invitation was based on alleged corruption and abuse of office at the university.

NAN recalls that the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Olusola Oyewole, and a principal officer were held on similar allegations on three occasions before they regained freedom last week.

Mr Ayo Oyewole, the Head, Public Affairs, of EFCC, told NAN that the former minister was released after the interrogation and asked to return at a later date.
