The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Maiduguri, Borno state northeast Nigeria, on Friday raided the premises of Maiduguri Flour Mills where it arrested top staff of the company.

Maiduguri Flour Mills is one of the oldest food processing companies belonging to the Borno state government. Witnesses said the officials arrived the location of Flour Mill at about 2 p.m. in the company of armed policemen who surrounded the premises.

The EFCC personnel reportedly drove into the premises and asked for the Managing Director of the company, Ma’aji Arfo, who was not available as at the time of the raid.

The personnel were said to have spent about an hour conducting searches on some of the key management offices during which they retrieved large volumes of documents and then left with four top management staff of the company including the Director of Finance.

It was gathered that the raid was prompted by a petition written by some unknown members of the state alleging financial misappropriation by the management of the company.

Those arrested comprised Mohammed Usman, Abba Kyari, Kailan Goni and Abdulfatai Abdulrahim. The EFCC Zonal Head of Operations in Maiduguri, Mr. Aminu Ado, confirmed the raid saying the arrest became necessary following the failure of the management of the company to cooperate in an ongoing investigation.
