The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is quizzing Ahmed Kuru, managing director of the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), over allegations related to sale of assets.
Kuru is accused of asset diversion and selling of seized assets to cronies at below value by businessmen accused of loan default with banks, according to a report by Sahara Reporters.
The newspaper quoted a source at the EFCC to have claimed that Kuru was invited by the commission after confirmation of his selling assets worth billions of naira belonging to Atlantic.
Atlantic was accused of loan default with Skye Bank and properties in collateral were seized while an action was instituted in court.
While the court case was still pending, the AMCON MD allegedly proceeded to sell the properties in dispute at a price far below the prevailing market value.
The development comes months after Kuru began his second term in office as AMCON MD.
