 The Director-General of the National Agency for Food, Drugs Administration and Control, (NAFDAC) Dr. Paul Orhi, has been taken into custody by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over allegations bordering on abuse of office and corruption.

As at the time of posting, Dr. Orhi was still being questioned by a crack team of EFCC detectives as he was said to have awarding contracts running into millions to companies in which he has interests.

An EFCC top source confirmed to Vanguard that the DG, who arrived the commission’s headquarters around 10am Monday had been making useful statement to its agents.

The source said: “It is true that the NAFDAC head was summoned by us and he is currently being quizzed in relation to allegations that he has been awarding contracts running into millions of Naira to companies close to him."

Asked if the man would be released on self recognition, the source said he had no idea but that doing so might depend on whether the operatives were satisfied with his answers to issues raised or not.
