A source who is in the know said that Idris is using powerful persons within the corridors of power to press on the Economic and Financial Crime Commission EFCC to drop the charges on the Accountant General and opt out of the court.

Recall that Idris Ahmed was charged alongside Godfrey Olusegun and Mohammed Kudu Usman on 14-count charge of stealing and criminal diversion of N109.5billion.
