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 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.
