EFCC Commences Probe into Halliburton Scandal as a Former Minister is Interrogated

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, grilled a former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Michael Aondoakaa (SAN), for his alleged role in the $182m Halliburton scandal.
It was learnt that Aondoakaa, who served as AGF under the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua, arrived the office of the EFCC around 10am on Wednesday, and was grilled for about eight hours.

As of 7pm yesterday, he was still in EFCC custody, an indication that he might have spent the night at the commission according to SaharaReporters.

A source at the anti-graft agency said, “Aondoakaa has been in our custody since morning and has been answering questions on his alleged role in the Halliburton scandal. More details will be revealed later.”

Aondoakaa’s alleged involvement in the scandal could not be immediately ascertained as of press time. However, he had been accused of frustrating investigations into the case during his time as the AGF between 2007 and 2010.

The Halliburton case relates to an alleged $182m contract involving a four-company joint venture to build a liquefied natural gas plant on Bonny Island.
