The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Sokoto Zonal Office, says it has arrested the Director-General of Sokoto Marshall Agency, Mr. Abdullahi Sa’idu, over alleged diversion of workers’ salary to the tune of N10m.

A statement issued by EFCC spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, made available to newsmen by the commission’s Sokoto Zonal Office on Saturday in Sokoto, said the director-general was arrested alongside the agency’s Accountant, Mr. Bashar Dodo-Iya, on Friday, September 13.

The statement said the arrest was as a result of a petition jointly signed and presented to the commission by 39 workers of the Agency, alleging that their three-month salaries were being withheld without any reason.

“They further alleged that the suspects refused to pay their salaries and diverted the money for their personal use, and all efforts made to get their salaries paid, proved abortive.

“However, a preliminary investigation revealed that the two conspired and diverted about N10m funds meant for the Marshalls’ salaries,” it said.

It added that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
