Mr. Soludo was questioned by the EFCC on Thursday.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Thursday, detained and questioned former Governor of the Central Bank, Chukwuma Soludo, for several hours.
Mr. Soludo was still at the commission’s office at about 5:30 p.m, a source said.
EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached for comments as his phone was switched off.
It is not clear what the EFCC is questioning the former Central Bank boss for although his name has been mentioned in several corruption reports.
One of such is the payments of bribes to CBN officials by Securency, the Australian Company that got the contract to print polymer notes while Mr. Soludo was governor.
The company was investigated in Australia with some of its officials admitting paying bribe to CBN officials to get the contract.
