Mr Osita Okechukwu, Director-General, Voice of Nigeria (VON), has been detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

A source who confirmed the incident to NAN said Okechukwu was detained over an alleged case of conspiracy, abuse of office and misappropriation of public funds to the tune of N1.3 billion.

It was gathered that the DG arrived at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja at about 1.30pm on Saturday to honour its invitation.

However, Okechukwu was still in the custody of the EFCC until late Saturday night.

“He is still with operatives of the EFCC.” the source told NAN.

When contacted, EFCC’s spokesperson, Mr Wilson Uwujaren confirmed the invitation of the VON DG but declined further comment
