The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited Ahmed Kuru, managing director of the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), for questioning.

A top official at the anti-graft agency confirmed the development to yesterday.

Kuru has been accused of asset diversion and selling of seized assets to cronies at below value prices by businessmen accused of loan default with banks, according to a report by Sahara Reporters.

The newspaper quoted a source at the EFCC to have claimed that Kuru was invited by the commission after confirmation of his selling assets worth billions of naira belonging to Atlantic.

According to the source, Atlantic was accused of loan default with Skye Bank and properties in collateral were seized while an action was instituted in court.

The development comes months after Kuru began his second term in office as AMCON MD.
