EFCC Detains Former Skye Bank Chairman Tunde Ayeni Over N1bn Bribe

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), have arrested and detained Tunde Ayeni, a former chairman of Skye Bank, over allegations that he bribed ex-FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed to acquire 54 plots of land in Abuja.

EFCC sources confirmed that Mr Ayeni was indeed arrested yesterday and the big man was still in detention because he was initially uncooperative.

One of the sources told SR that Mr. Ayeni is also being investigated for playing roles in several other deals involving former First Lady Patience Jonathan and ex-head of state, Abubakar Abdulsalam, who co-owns a telecommunications company with the former banking executive.

The sources disclosed that Mr. Ayeni was still undergoing interrogation and may remain in detention as investigators work hard to unearth “many more deals”.
