Nigerians tackle EFCC as agency disowns report about ex-govs

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says the list of ex-governors believed to have misappropriated over N2trn of public funds did not emanate from him.

The anti-corrupt agency made this known in a post via its verified Facebook account on Sunday [today].

The post was titled, List of Ex- Govs Under Investigation for Alleged Corruption Not From EFCC, and it reads,

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, feels obliged to dissociate itself from a phantom report circulating in sections of the media claiming it has released a full list of ex- governors being investigated for alleged corruption.

The report headlined: ” EFCC Releases Full List of 58 Ex- Governors that Embezzled N2 .187 Trillion”, in one of the news outlets, is false and mischievous as the Commission neither issued the said list nor entertained discussions on investigation of ex-governors with any news medium.

This invariably means that the so-called list is a disingenuous fabrication designed to achieve motives known only to the authors.

The public is enjoined to ignore the report as it is false and misleading.

The media is advised to endeavour to crosscheck facts pertaining to matters under investigation with the Commission to avoid misleading the public with false and inaccurate reports.

See the responses:

Shamsu Abdullahi: EFCC are afraid of them…The Governors are real enemies of Nigeria…They hijacked local governments funds meant for developing downtrodden societies and now they will obtain fraudulent court orders to prevent EFCC prosecution….Let EFCC published the current status of corruption cases against all ex Governors.

Ottah Kalu: The EFCC’s denial of the fake list of corrupt past governors only masks the bigger issue: when will justice finally catch up with those who’ve lost their immunity and are under investigation? When will we end the double standard where justice crawls for the powerful and sprints for the weak? It’s time for accountability to know no bounds and for justice to be served equally to all.

Francis Ekpenyong: Does it mean no Lagos State Gov have ever been investigated? How about Tinubu vs Nuhu Ribadu Festus, Keyamo, Ambode that EFCC visited but were resisted by Epe People?
Continue to the play, this is why someone like me never taken EFCC Serious.

Terzy Terz: Even at that, please look into those names especially the past governors of BENUE STATE. There is more to uncover than that of Bello’s case. I may not detects which case to work on but benue People deserves justice.💪 We Trust the process. EFCC 💪

Yakubu Agada Elisha: Nice one. But let the commission focus more on the wanted former governor of Kogi State. The masses are interested in the case and trust me, you ghat the masses support especially the good people of Kogi State. Both at home and in diaspora. More grace 💪💪💪
