Chief Anyim Pius Anyim, the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). He was arrested by the anti-graft agency over alleged scam involving the Centenary City in Abuja.
According to the report by Sahara Reporters, Anyim is in custody where he is being interrogated by EFCC officials. The report said Anyim, who was SGF under the immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan, is being interrogated by the Commission’s operatives. On February 3, Anyim, while appearing before the committee, accused Herman Hembe, the committee’s chairman, of “deep-seated personal bias”.
Recall that the House of Representatives had recently suggested the prosecution of Anyim over the Abuja Centenary City project. The house also said Anyim and his associates flouted existing laws guiding the Abuja land swap policy for personal gains. The project in question is which cost of over $18 billion has Anyim has as a major driver.
