Governor Ben Ayade’s Commissioner for Environment, Mr. Mfon Bassey has been arrested and is currently cooling off in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The Commissioner was picked up yesterday thursday at his residence in Calabar.

According to very reliable source within the anti graft agency, Mr. Mfon Bassey was arrested after refusal to obey several invitations by the commission.

His arrest, according to highly placed sources is in connection with several shady deals, fake contract documents to obtain funds and other related offences.

It is alleged that Mr. Mfon Bassey has been running shady financial errands for Mr. Frank Ayade who is Governor Ben Ayade’s younger brother through one of the commercial banks.

Our sources say although the account officer is cooperating with the officers at the anti graft agency, Mr. Mfon Bassey has refused to even write his statement, claiming to be unable to read and write.

Until his appointment as Environment Commissioner, he was the Chairman of Calabar Transportation Regulation Agency (CTRA).
