FRESH TENSION IN RIVERS STATE!!! Governor Nyesom Wike May Be In Trouble, As EFCC Arrests The GMD Of One Of The Most Popular Banks In Nigeria

The General Managing Director, GMD, of Zenith Bank, Peter Amangbo, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over a series of transactions his Bank allegedly carried out on behalf of Rivers State.

The EFCC is alleging that the transactions worth about N117 billion in value, are suspicious in nature.

Insiders at the EFCC and Zenith Bank, revealed that Amangbo was held to explain why his Bank failed to document the withdrawals, allegedly done over a three-year period.

It was gathered that atleast four other officials are being sought in the investigation.

The suspects considered to be at large, include: Fubara Similari, whom Investigators identified as the Director of Finance and Account at the Government House, in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

The Government House Cashier is also said to be on the run.

In a swift reaction however, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, slammed the investigation as a “political witch-hunt”, saying that he would continue to prevent State officials from appearing before the EFCC for questioning.

“No government official will appear before the EFCC”, Wike was quoted as saying, in a statement signed by his Spokesperson, Simeon Nwakaudu.

The Governor further disclosed that an Appeal Court judgement in 2007, prohibited the EFCC from prying into Rivers State coffers, a ruling he claimed had not been appealed.

“They filed for leave to appeal the judgment at the Court of Appeal. Until they set aside the judgment, we will not come”, Wike said, adding that a fresh lawsuit would be filed, to stop the EFCC’s investigation of Rivers State accounts.
