The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday froze the bank accounts of Akwa Ibom State.
The governor of Akwa Ibom, Udom Emmanuel, and the state’s accountant-general were reportedly shocked by the development.
It came a day after Governor Samuel Ortom raised an alarm that the EFCC has frozen the state’s bank accounts, trapping workers and pensioners’ salaries in a state beset by hardship following months of deadly attacks by suspected herdsmen.
