EFCC Denies Releasing List Of Former Nigerian Governors Under Probe For Embezzling Over N2.1Trillion

The purported investigation involves N2.187 trillion allegedly misappropriated by the ex-governors.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) has dissociated itself from a purported list of former governors under investigation for alleged corruption.

The purported investigation involves N2.187 trillion allegedly misappropriated by the ex-governors.

The anti-corruption agency in a statement signed by its Head of Media & Publicity, Mr Dele Oyewale on Sunday, said it was 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 agency said 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,” it added.
