EFCC Questions Fowler Over Fraud Allegations Against Alpha Beta

EFCC Questions Fowler Over Fraud Allegations Against Alpha Beta (Updated: 2 years ago)


The former Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Babatunde Fowler, is currently been questioned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Flower is been interrogated by the commission over N100 billion tax evasion allegations levelled against a tax firm, Alpha Beta Consulting.

The former Chief Executive Officer, Lagos State Internal Revenue Service, honoured the m invitation from the EFCC on Monday.

Recall that the former Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Alpha Beta Consulting, Dapo Apara, accused the firm of tax fraud to the tune of N100bn.

In a petition to the EFCC in 2018, Apara stated that Alpha Beta, the firm given exclusive rights to monitor and collect Internally Generated Revenue on behalf of the Lagos Government, “has become an avenue for official corruption of government officials, a conduit pipe for massive money-laundering scheme, tax evasion, among other vices.”

In the petition which was written by his lawyer, Adetunji Shoyoye and Associates, the ex-CEO claimed that the fraud had been covered by powerful politicians in the state.

The petition signed by Adetunji Adegboyega on behalf of the law firm, read in part,  “Over the years the company has been protected and shielded by some powerful politicians and people in the society which made them to always boast of being untouchable, but our client, feeling the need not to keep quiet again and strengthened by his belief in the fact that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is keen on fighting corruption, which has been the bane of our country, is of the firm belief that it’s time to expose and open the can of worms called Alpha Beta Consulting.”

The development was confirmed by the spokesperson of EFCC, Wilson Uwajaren.

Yes, Fowler responded to an invitation this morning. I believe he is still here,” he explained.
