The suspended Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Minister, Dr. Betta Edu, has arrived at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Headquarters to be cross-examined over alleged N585 million fraud in her ministry.

Edu, who was suspended yesterday, January 8, by President Bola Tinubu, was accused of paying the humanitarian fund into a private account.

The N585 million was meant for payment of grants to vulnerable groups in Akwa Ibom, Lagos, Cross River and Ogun states.

It was learnt that Edu is the first minister to be suspended from office since members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) were sworn in August last year by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
