The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Pius Anyim.

According to Punch, Anyim was released on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, after he submitted his Nigerian passport to the anti-graft agency.

The EFCC had earlier obtained a warrant allowing them to keep the former SGF for 30 days to enable them investigate the allegations against him thoroughly.

A source who spoke to Punch, said “Anyim was released on administrative bail after he had surrendered his passport. He is expected to return some money to the EFCC and also report back every two weeks.”

Allegations against Anyim

Anyim was accused of awarding contract worth N13b to companies he is connected to, and collecting N520m from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

An EFCC source also said “Anyim was SGF from May 2011 to May 29, 2015. During this period, specifically May 2012 to May 2015, the SGF Ecological Fund Account with the Central Bank of Nigeria received an inflow of N58,146,983,677.85.

“From this fund, three of the companies linked to Anyim, Foundation Years, Obis Associate and Eldyke Engineering received contracts worth over N13bn. Foundation Years alone received a net payment of N10,308,017,838.85 between 2014 and 2015.

“Curiously, on receiving the fund, Foundation Years and another Anyim company, Br-Kthru made several transfers to 37 entities. Some of the organisations and individuals have no nexus at all with ecological issues. Investigators are probing the reasons behind the wild disbursement.”

The House of  Representatives also recommended that Pius Anyim be prosecuted following his alleged fraudulent role in the Abuja Centenary City project.
