The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission yesterday questioned a former Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. MICHAEL AONDOAKAA, for his alleged role in the one hundred and eighty two million dollars Halliburton scandal.
It was learnt that AONDOAKAA, who served as Attorney General of the Federation AGF under the late President UMARU YAR’ADUA, arrived the office of the EFCC in the morning and may have spent the night in the custody of the anti-graft agency.
AONDOAKAA’s alleged involvement in the scandal could not be immediately ascertained.
However, he had been accused of frustrating investigations into the case during his time as the AGF between two thousand and seven and twenty ten.
The Halliburton case relates to an alleged one hundred and eighty two million dollar-contract involving a four-company joint venture to build a liquefied natural gas plant on Bonny Island.
