EFCC Denies List of Ex-Governors Under Investigation for Corruption

…Says List Not from EFCC

… Describes reports as False, misleading

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has disassociated itself from the unverified viral reports the across media claiming it has released a full list of ex-governors being investigated for alleged corruption.

In a statement from the Commission’ s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyelewa noted that the report is not from EFCC.

According to him, 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 commission called on the public to ignore the report describing it as “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” he added.
