EFFC dispels reports of investigating Ogun Governor

Published

Governor Ibikunle Amosun

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Wednesday dismissed reports that it was investigating Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun.

The commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement, described the report as false and untrue that its operatives stormed Governor Amosun’s residence in Ikeja where cash in local and foreign currencies were said to have been stashed in a vault.

The statement reads: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been drawn to reports in the social media purporting that the Commission recently stormed the basement of the Ikeja, Lagos residence of Senator Ibikunle Amosun, governor of Ogun State, where cash in local and foreign currencies are said to have been hidden in a vault.

“The report quoting ghost sources in the Commission further alleged that the Commission had been on the trail of the governor for two weeks before the purported raid.

“It is important to state that there is no truth in the report. Governor Amosun was neither under surveillance nor was any of his residence raided by operatives of the EFCC.

“Consequently, members of the public are enjoined to disregard the false report.”
