Pauline Tallen, the former minister of women affairs, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) regarding suspicions of corruptly amassing wealth.
It was learned that Tallen was taken to the Abuja zonal command on Thursday to undergo interrogation concerning the alleged misappropriation of N2 billion.
Though details of the allegations against the ex-minister were sketchy, a source familiar with the case said it bordered on corrupt enrichment to the tune of N2billion
“The ex-mnister arrived at our Abuja Zonal Command (not the headquarters), on invitation, at about 12 pm, but she’s still being grilled by investigators of the commission as at 8:30 pm.
“She’s being investigated for alleged misappropriation of funds and corrupt enrichment to the tune of N2billion, and part of the money was allegedly diverted from the African First Lady Peace Mission Project.”
