Suspended Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Minister, Dr Betta Edu, has arrived at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for grilling over her involvement in an alleged N585 million fraud.


Blaze fm recalls that Edu was suspended on Monday by President Bola Tinubu.


The minister was accused of paying the humanitarian fund into a private bank account.

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


Edu is the first minister to be suspended from office since members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) were sworn in in August last year.
