The suspended accountant general of the federation, Ahmed Idris, has spent his fourth night in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Idris was picked up by anti-graft operatives last Wednesday as an alleged 80-billion-naira fraud was traced to him.
According to EFCC, the suspended accountant general had allegedly raked funds from bogus consultancy services and laundered the funds through real estate and families.
Following his detention by EFCC, the finance minister, Zainab Ahmed last Wednesday suspended Idris from office indefinitely without pay.
An unconfirmed report claims that 17 properties located in London, Dubai, Lagos, Abuja, and Kano have been allegedly traced to the him.
