The detention of the former SGF is coming days after Oduah was named in the Pandora Papers as one of 10 Nigerians hiding their wealth in tax havens.

The EFCC is believed to have commenced a probe of Oduah and others named in the report.

A source said, “Anyim’s invitation and interrogation is in connection with a case of money laundering involving a former Aviation Minister and serving senator, Senator Stella Oduah.

”Investigations revealed that part of the aviation ministry’s N780 million was traced to a company in which Anyim has an interest. He is presently cooperating with investigators.”

The Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said he had no information on Anyim’s detention.
