BREAKING: EFCC arrests Ex-FIRS Boss, Fowler over fraud allegations

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a former Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, Babatunde Fowler.

Fowler, a longtime ally of the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was arrested over an alleged N5bn fraud carried out while he headed FIRS.

The former FIRS Chairman is said to be at the Lagos State anti-grafy’s office undergoing interrogation.

According to Sahara Reporters, nine senior officials were detained by the EFCC over alleged multi-billion Naira fraud in 2019.

In 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari had sacked Babatunde Fowler after he was issued a query for worsening tax revenues since 2015.
