Although the EFCC has not officially commented, sources indicate that Shehu’s cooperation may expose details of funds laundered by contractors during the previous administration.

Meanwhile, former Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Sadiya Umar, summoned for interrogation by the EFCC, failed to appear on Wednesday, potentially leading to further actions by the anti-graft agency.
