The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has summoned the suspended minister of humanitarian affairs and poverty alleviation, Betta Edu, to its headquarters in Abuja, for questioning.

ADULAWO News reports that this followed her suspension from office by President Bola Tinubu over allegations of controversial N585.189 million grant payment.

Recall that ADULAWO News had earlier reported that President Tinubu on Monday suspended Edu from office with immediate effect and consequently ordered the EFCC to investigate the activities of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.
