Senator Seriake Dickson, the former Governor of Bayelsa State and Senator representing Bayelsa West in the National Assembly, has been interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on allegations of misappropriation of public funds, among other things.
Dickson showed himself before the EFCC on Tuesday after the agency invited him over charges of abuse of authority and theft of public monies during his eight-year tenure as governor of Bayelsa State, according to NEWS DIRECT.
Dickson was the governor of the state between 2012 and 2020.
As at the time of the filing this report, it was learnt that the former governor, who arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC in Jabi, Abuja around 11am, was still being grilled by a team of operatives investigating the allegations against him.
Though the details of the allegations against the governor were sketchy as of press time, a source familiar with the case disclosed that they are related to issues of assets declaration and misapplication of intervention funds and other assets belonging to the state government.
