Uwujaren noted that the commission acted on verified intelligence against Idris.

He is said to have “raked off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members and close associates”.

The funds were laundered through real estate investments in Kano and Abuja, the EFCC added.

Idris was nabbed after failing to honour invitations to respond to issues connected to the alleged fraudulent acts.
