Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen the bank account of the Director of Finance and Accounts (DFA) of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Mrs B. O. Ogundipe, as part of its ongoing probe into the purchase of vehicles by the Assembly.
The EFCC placed a Post-No-Debit (PND) on the account of the DFA for initially failing to honour an invitation of the commission, it was gathered.
If a PND is placed on an account, it restricts the owner from withdrawing funds from the bank account.
The director is one of the officials of the Assembly that have been interrogated over a an Abuja-based lawyer and anti-corruption advocate, Tosin Ojaomo, alleging that the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin, in connivance with top civil servants to supply refurbished cars instead of new ones to lawmakers.
An official of the EFCC said though the DFA later appeared after her account was frozen, the process of unfreezing the account after a PND order had been issued is a long one.
