EFCC Grills Former Women Affairs Minister, Tallen Over Diversion Of N2billion


A former Minister of women affairs, Pauline Tallen, has been grilled by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over alleged corruption and diversion of N2billion.

Tallen arrived at the Abuja zonal command of the EFCC on Friday for questioning over the alleged misappropriation.

Although details of the allegations against the ex-minister were still unclear, a source familiar with the case told TheCable that it bordered on corruption to the tune of N2billion.

Part of the money was allegedly diverted from the African First Lady Peace Mission Project (AFLPM).

The initiative was led by Maryam Abacha, former Nigerian first lady and is centred on promoting peace and harmony in Africa.

The spokesperson of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached for confirmation.

Shortly before May 29, the EFCC had said it intended to go after the-outgoing governors and other public officials.
