Babtunde Fowler

Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, Babatunde Fowler, is still being interrogated and investigated by investigators at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, as part of investigations into the sleaze in the agency.

The EFCC has been looking into the tour duty allowance fraud perpetrated by the top management of the federal tax revenue collector.

THEWILL gathered authoritatively that Mr. Fowler has been a frequent guest of investigators at the Okotie Eboh, Ikoyi-Lagos office of the EFCC where bank fraud and financial crimes are investigated.

THEWILL source, who opted to remain anonymous, said the EFCC is also investigating Fowler over contracts he approved since 2015 when he assumed office as head of the agency.

The FIRS under Fowler, whose tenure ends this December, has been rocked by allegations of sleaze, which prompted the EFCC action.
