BREAKING: EFCC Freezes Betta Edu’s Bank Accounts

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen the bank accounts of the suspended Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu.

The EFCC’s action is to ensure the integrity of the ongoing investigations over the N585m funds diversion scandal involving Edu.

All of Edu’s personal bank accounts have been frozen to prevent her from making any transactions or accessing her funds. She is currently unable to withdraw, deposit, or operate her accounts in any bank.

Also, the Commission has seized the passports of both Edu and her predecessor, Sadiya Umar-Farouq.


“The commission has seized the passports of the two ministers, Sadiya Shehu and Betta Edu. We have also seized Mrs Halima Shehu’s passport pending the conclusion of investigations. The commission does not want to risk having any of them leave the country while they still have questions to answer.”

Stay tuned for more details…
