Former FIRS Chairman, Tunde Fowler, In EFCC’s Custody Over Alleged Fraud

Babatunde Fowler, former chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), has honored a summon by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged fraud.

Fowler, a long-time ally of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, honored the invitation on Monday morning, November 2.

The EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed this to PremiumTimes, saying;

He was invited to the commission and he responded today at our zonal office in Lagos.

Though it is said that this is over an ongoing investigation involving Alpha Beta Consulting, a tax firm, Mr Uwujaren did not state the reason for Fowler’s summons.
