Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has Reportedly Concluded plans to Probe Ministers & Aides of Ex President Goodluck Jonathan!
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly concluded plans to begin the probing process of financial transactions of former President Goodluck Jonathan‘s ministers and aides. According to Punch, the agency will focus its investigations on the establishments that attracted huge allocations from the Federal Government under GEJ’s administration. The report further names the ministries of defense, petroleum resources and power, as some of those that will be probed.
An unnamed EFCC source is said to have stated:
“I am not aware of anybody who has been summoned or interrogated by the commission. Those to be interrogated would be determined by the gravity of the allegations against them as contained in the petitions.
The files will be studied and assigned to units to handle the investigations. It is based on the petitions that people will be summoned.
“Most likely next week, action would be taken on those petitions…”
However, Wilson Uwajaren, Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, said he wasn’t aware of any such probe.
“I am not aware of the directive you are talking about. It is not to my knowledge,” he said to newsmen.
