Former acting-Governor of Adamawa, Fintiri interrogated by Police over allegations of misappropriation of funds

The former acting Governor of Adamawa State, Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, was invited on Thursday by the Nigeria Police Force for questioning over his stewardship when he was in charge of the state.

Some policemen were said to have stormed Yola, the state capital, on Wednesday evening from the Police Headquarters, Abuja, and reportedly invited Fintiri, who is the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, to the state police command for interrogation.

It was gathered that he was interrogated at the conference hall of the police command yesterday over allegations of misappropriation of funds during his stint as acting governor of the state.

A police source told ThisDay that further investigations on the issue were still in progress, stressing that the police were acting based on reports at their disposal. The source said after interrogating Fintiri, the police released him.
