The Managing director and three other top staff have been under investigation of the anti-graft agency for over a month, after they were apprehended by the commission over alleged financial impropriety.

The EFCC spokesperson, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, who spoke with a newswire service confirmed the arrest but disclosed he could not go into details then because investigations were still on.
