Reports indicated that Shema reported to EFCC office in Abuja around 9:30 a.m. Friday.

Recall that the EFCC had said that the former governor, a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, was declared wanted after efforts to get him to respond to the allegations through invitations by the EFCC failed.
