EFCC Denies Blocking Imo State Bank Account

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has denied a Newspaper report that alleged that the Anti-graft agency is planning to arrest some out-going Governors after May 29th.

The Commission said the lead story on the  Newspaper published of March 31, 2019, titled: “EFCC raises teams to quiz out-going Governors such as  Amosun, Okocha, Yari as immunity ends” is false.

According to EFCC, the said Newspapers had claimed that ahead of May 29, 2019, handover date to newly elected states helmsmen, the Commission has set up teams to probe some  out-going Governors, Governors accused of perpetuating acts of corruption.

“It is instructive to note that the reporter did not give the composition and terms of reference of the purported teams set up by the EFCC.

The report is a figment of the imagination of the reporter as everything about the setting of the teams ended with the first paragraph without details of such teams being set up.

Again, the story is not true, as the EFCC does not go after anybody, including ex-governors on speculative ground.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Commission only act after the investigators have done a thorough job on any individual or firm involved in corruption related cases.

The Commission wants to advise our stakeholders, including our friends in the media to be circumspect and verify their stories before going to press.

Members of the public are therefore advise to disregard the story as no team has been set up against any former governor.”
