The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has dismissed a claim by the spokesperson for Mohammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation, Shehu Garba, that the commission intends to probe some of the leaders of the opposition.
The Head, Media and Publicity, EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwajaren, who spoke at a news conference in Abuja on Friday, described as forgery a document containing the names of certain opposition figures such as APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, among others, said to have been marked for probe by the commission on the instruction of Chief of Staff to the President.
“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to alert the public about a letter supposedly from the office of the Chief of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan, mandating the Commission to initiate discreet investigation against some prominent political figures in the country.”
Furthermore, the EFCC spokesman alleged that Garba had nursed a grudge against the anti-graft agency over the years when he was working as the spokesman of Atiku.
