The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), on Friday interrogated former Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Ramalan Yero for four hours at the commission’s office in Kaduna.
Alhaji Yero left the EFCC Kaduna office about 1:30 pm, after being interrogated.
The former governor thanked his supporters who were outside the EFCC office, for their solidarity.
Alhaji Yero, however declined to make comment.
His spokesman, Malam Yakubu Lere told NAN that his boss was invited in connection with the N700 million campaign funds released to the state by the People Democratic Party National office in 2015.
Lere recalled that the former governor was at the EFCC office in Kano two years ago over the matter and was granted administrative bail.
“At that time, he explained during the interrogation that the N700 million was PDP money sent to him as the then Governor of Kaduna State to finance 2015 general election.
“Even last week he was here on the same issue, but as you can see, he came out smiling, meaning the commission has found nothing to hold against him for now,” Lere said.
