EFCC Replies Deputy Senate President Ekweremadu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission( EFCC) has  accused Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu of raising false alarm about a plot to raid his residence and plant monies.

It said the antics of planting monies and guns in suspects’ houses were alien to the commission and that the alarm by the Deputy Senate President was not only strange but “smacks of a scripted propaganda to distract the commission by putting it on the defensive.”
EFCC said Ekweremadu has nothing to worry over if there is nothing in his cupboard.

It, however, said that no amount of scare-mongering will dissuade the EFCC from enforcing its mandate to rid Nigeria of corruption.

A statement by the Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren said the alleged plot only existed in Ekweremadu’s imagination.
