LAGOS May 10 (Reuters) – Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission visited local lender Access Bank and questioned its managing director Herbert Wigwe over a transaction, the bank said on Tuesday.
Wigwe complied with a request to follow officers for “further interrogation,” the bank said in a statement, referring a visit by EFCC agents on Friday.
“He was released without charge on the same day, following the resolution of the underlying issues.”
