EFCC quizzes former FIRS chairman, Fowler, for second day 


‎The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission questioned the ‎immediate past Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Babatunde Fowler, for the second day on Tuesday.

It was gathered that Fowler, also a former Chairman of the Lagos Inland Service, was quizzed by the EFCC in Lagos for over seven hours on Monday and was allowed to go home late at night.

EFCC spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, who confirmed the development, said Fowler was asked to return on Tuesday because he still had questions to answer.‎

Fowler is answering questions over a revenue shortfall at the FIRS as well as his alleged links to Alpha Beta Consulting, a Lagos-based company that helps the state government to reconcile taxes for a commission of 10 per cent.

The current management of the FIRS is also said to be assisting the EFCC with information as regards Fowler’s investigation.
