The technocrat, who arrived at the headquarters of the anti-graft agency at about 11am, on Monday, August 9, 2021, is being grilled by a team of operatives of the Commission over wide ranging corruption issues.
 
A source familiar with the investigation disclosed that the NIPC boss is being questioned for abuse of office, bordering largely on contract fraud running into several millions of Naira and a number of frivolous allowances.
 
As of the time of filling this report, she has spent over nine hours with her interrogators.
