The Chief Executive Officer of Access Bank Hubert Wigwe is being linked to massive corruptions allegations against former Governor of Lagos state Akinwunmi Ambode.
Ambode iscurrently undergoing investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over an alleged N9billion corruption case.
Operatives of the EFCC earlier today performed an ‘’extensive search’’ of the Ikoyi and Epe homes of Ambode as part of this investigation.
Emerging details have it that multiple deals perfected between Access Bank and Lagos State Government, including the yearly long-distance Marathon under Ambode’s watch formed about alleged N800million fraud in the ongoing investigation.
‘’Nothing is proven but the investigation is on’’ a source stated.
Ambode and the Access Bank CEO are said to enjoy a rich personal relationship.
Ambode who insists is hands are clean in the charges against him issued a statement telling his supporters ‘’there is no cause for alarm’’ as the investigation continues.
