The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, says it has begun investigations into failed federal road contracts in the South-East.

The commission has invited all contractors awarded various road contracts by the federal government for questioning.

The EFCC’s Zonal Head of Operations, Johnson Babalola, said this on Tuesday in Enugu while briefing journalists on the activities of the commission in the past seven months in the area.

Mr. Babalola said that probe became necessary in view of the deplorable condition of the roads in the zone.

“The deplorable condition of federal roads in the South-East has caught our attention. The zone has one of the poorest roads in the country. Yet, the contracts were awarded.

“So, we have invited the contractors and we are currently inspecting their records. Everything that surrounds the award of the contracts and execution of the roads will be probed.”
