The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC Ltd has been taken over by The Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCON.

Anaedoonline.ng reports that the development is coming a day after Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), apprehended AMCON Managing Director, Ahmed Kuru.

Kuru was reportedly invited to the headquarters of the anti-graft agency in Abuja on Thursday over alleged assets diversion and selling of seized assets to cronies at below value prices.
