Former governor of Bayelsa State, Mr. Seriake Dickson, was, on Tuesday, grilled by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The Nation cited an EFCC source who said that Dickson presented himself to the EFCC following an invitation.
The agency reportedly grilled the former governor over allegations bordering on abuse of office and misappropriation of public funds while he steered the affairs of the state for eight-year between 2012 and 2020.
The source said: “The former governor who arrived the headquarters of the EFCC in Jabi, Abuja at about 11am was questioned by a team of operatives investigating the allegations against him.”
Details of the allegations against the governor were sketchy but it was gathered that the allegations bordered on declaration of assets and misapplication of intervention funds.
The former governor also answered questions about other assets belonging to the Bayelsa State government.
The Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, also confirmed the invitation of the former Governor to the newsmakers.
The former Governor is yet to issue a statement on the invitation and details of the interrogation.
