The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday quizzed former governor of Kebbi State, Usman Dakingari, over allegations of money laundering while in office.

Dakingari, who arrived the EFCC headquarters at about 10.00 am was questioned by operatives of the commission for hours.

The former Kebbi governor who served between 2007 to 2015 under the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, is an in-law to the late President, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.

It would be recalled that the anti-graft agency had earlier arrested Dakingari’s wife, Zainab, who was reportedly accused of laundering N2 billion while her husband was governor.
