Ex-Governor of Borno State, Ali Modu-sheriff.

The EFCC had arrested Sheriff in June 2015 after he was accused of looting funds during his tenure as the governor of Borno State.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said that new Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, is still under investigation for corruption.

The EFCC had arrested Sheriff in June 2015 after he was accused of looting funds during his tenure as the governor of Borno State.

The disclosure was made to Punch on Monday, February 22, 2016, by EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren who said “Sheriff is still under investigation.”

“We can ask him to come back anytime we need him. I cannot disclose the details of the investigations for now but the matter is already in the public domain,” Uwujaren said.

Sheriff was accused of mismanaging a sum of N300bn which he received from the Federation Account between 2003 and 2011.

He was detained from June 3 to June 4 but was subsequently released on administrative bail without being charged to court.

Meanwhile, Sheriff has said that he will not resign as PDP Chairman despite the controversy caused by his appointment.
