No Plan to Arrest Amosun, Yari and Okorocha – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has reacted to ‘plan’ to probe Governors Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Rochas Okorocha (Imo) and AbdulAziz Yari (Zamfara), once their immunity ends.

Tony Orilade, EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, in a statement Sunday night, said the claim to probe the governors was false.

He said: “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.”
