The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chief Chibudom Nwuche, for an alleged N5.6bn contract scam.

Nwuche served at the lower legislative chamber between 1999 and 2003 under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party.

He was detained after responding to an EFCC invitation on Monday.

The former lawmaker allegedly got three contracts from the Kingsley Kuku-led Presidential Amnesty Office.

Detectives at the EFCC, however, said Nwuche, allegedly helped Kuku to launder N2.8bn under the guise of sending ex-militants for training in 2012.

Reports reveal that Nwuche is being investigated over an alleged N5.6bn contract which his company, Foundation For Youth Development, allegedly received from the Kingsley Kuku-led Presidential Amnesty Office.

“He allegedly got three contracts from the Amnesty Office in 2012 for the training of ex-agitators in Malaysia. Up till now, nothing was done about the contract yet, he collected N2.8bn,” an investigator said.
