The Group Managing Directors (GMDs) of Zenith, Providus, and Jaiz banks, on Tuesday, honoured the invitation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to hand over documents relating to accounts operated by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs to the anti-graft agency.

A source from the Agency confirmed that the bank Czars, departed the Abuja headquarters of the anti-graft agency after the documents were handed over.

Multiple sources close to the banks, EFCC, and the Presidency clarified that the bank’s documents were requested by the anti-graft agency, to help in its ongoing investigation, into alleged financial impropriety in the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

President Bola Tinubu, on Monday, suspended the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, and directed an investigation into her Ministry.

Edu, who was grilled on Tuesday, by the EFCC, had allegedly directed the disbursement of N585,198,500.00 grant meant for Vulnerable Groups in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Lagos, and Ogun States, into a private account.
