The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has responded to a trending interview granted to the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, by Bello Muhammed Matawalle, governor of Zamfara State, where the later allegedly made wild bribery allegations against the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa
EFCC’s made this claim in its press statement, that Matawalle’s recourse to mudslinging is symptomatic of a drowning man clutching at straws, that the Commission will not be drawn into a mud fight with a suspect under its investigation for corruption and unconscionable pillage of the resources of his state.
The watching eagle has however challenged Matawalle to go beyond sabre-rattling by spilling the beans – provide concrete evidence as proof of his allegations.
Thus the Commission is said to alert the public about plans by some of the alleged corrupt politically exposed persons to flee the country ahead of May 29. The Commission is working in close collaboration with its international partners to frustrate these escape plans, and bring those involved to justice.
