EFCC Grills Ex-Minister Pauline Tallen Over N2bn Fraud

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC is currently grilling the immediate former Minister for Women Affairs and Social Development, Pauline Tallen over allegations of money laundering.

Gatekeepers News reports that Tallen is being quizzed by operatives of the EFCC at its Zonal Headquarters, in Wuse, Abuja.

Although details of the allegations against her were sketchy, a source familiar with the case said it bordered on corrupt enrichment to the tune of N2billion.

The source said, “The ex-minister arrived at our Abuja Zonal Command (not the headquarters), on invitation, at about 12 pm, but she’s still being grilled by investigators of the commission as at 8:30 pm.

“She’s being investigated for alleged misappropriation of funds and corrupt enrichment to the tune of N2billion, and part of the money was allegedly diverted from the African First Lady Peace Mission Project.”

Meanwhile, the Spokesperson for the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached as of press time.
