MONEY LAUNDERING: EFCC ARRESTS IKEJE ASOGWA

Chief Ikeje Asogwa
Report reaching the newsroom of Tectono Business Review has it that the current People Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman in Enugu State, Chief Ikeje Asogwa, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over money laundering allegation. This development is in continuation of the probe of the financial recklessness of the immediate past governor of Enugu State, Barrister Sullivan Chime.

We gathered from an impeccable source that Chief Asogwa,  who served as the Managing Director of the Enugu State Housing Corporation, was invited followed the discovery that Enugu state funds was moved through him ostensibly for housing development but with no trace of the houses as the funds are believed to have been diverted. He got to the headquarters of EFCC in Abuja about10.30am today, July 31, 2015.

We equally gathered that Barrister Chime’s mistress, Mrs. Ifeoma Nwobodo, who served as his Chief of Staff is also being detained by EFCC. Tectono Business Review will publish detail later.
