The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has refuted a report which claimed the anti-graft agency has set up a team to investigate some outing governors as their immunity ends in May, 2019.
The report claimed that Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State, Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State, were to be probed for corruption after they step down from their seats in May 29, 2019.
The EFCC on Monday reacting to the report said “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 advised to disregard the story as no team has been set up against any former governor.”
