N6.5billion Fraud: EFCC Moves Against Ex-Gov Sylva’s Wife

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Tuesday, said it has gathered sufficient evidence to warrant the prosecution of wife of former Governor of Bayelsa State, Mrs. Alayingi Sylva, on allegations of corruption.

 

The anti-graft agency made the disclosure on a day the embattled erstwhile governor, Timipre Sylva, begged the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to grant him leave to accompany his wife to the United Kingdom to enable her to undertake a surgical operation.

 

Sylva who was recently granted administrated bail by the EFCC after he was re-arrested in his Abuja residence over his alleged complicity in a fresh allegation bothering on misappropriation and illegal diversion of public funds whilst he was in power, yesterday, told the high court that Cromwell Hospital in London has already scheduled his wife for an operation on May 31.
