EFCC Detains Former Skye Bank Chairman Tunde Ayeni Over N1bn Bribe To Ex-FCT Minister

Agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested and detained Tunde Ayeni, a former chairman of Skye Bank, over allegations that he bribed a former minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Mohammed, to acquire 54 plots of land in Abuja, the Nigerian capital.

Two EFCC sources told SaharaReporters that Mr. Ayeni was arrested on the 24th and has remained in detention because he was initially uncooperative.

Sahara reporters sources added that Mr. Ayeni is also being investigated for playing roles in several other deals involving former First Lady Patience Jonathan and a former head of state, Abubakar Abdulsalam, who co-owns a telecommunications company with the former banking executive.

Our sources disclosed that Mr. Ayeni was still undergoing interrogation and may remain in detention as investigators work hard to unearth his many deals.

  4. I knew this would come when he donated 2billion naira to GEJ campaign and also 5billon naira on behalf of himself and friends.
    Unfortunately GEJ didn't win d election.

I been think say top management staff no dey make errors, talk less of "stealing", yet if junior staff still 5k, na the end of the road for the person. Even whistle blower them drive because them no dey like hear truth, giving flimsy excuse for the dismissal. God dey.
