EFCC Arrests Emeka Mba, DG of NBC Over N15bn Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested Emeka Mba, the Director General of the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) over an alleged N15billion fraud.

Mr. Mba was arrested on Monday morning in Abuja and taken to the EFCC’s headquarters where he is said to be currently under interrogated.

Sources say the EFCC had been investigating the NBC in the past one month over secret deals.

Last week, some detectives stormed the headquarters of the NBC, ransacking computers and files in the Finance and Account unit.

During the operation, some key Accounts staff where taken away.

Sources said the arrested officials made confessional statements to the EFCC implicating Mr. Mba and some top officials of the NBC.

A top official of the EFCC confirmed the development to Premium Times, saying: “Yes, he (Mr. Mba) is with us. We are investigating massive diversion of public funds and we’re making progress. Mba definitely has questions to answer.”
