The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Sunday said it has not raised teams to probe or interrogate some of the outgoing governors.

It said it does not go after anybody, including ex-governors on speculative ground. The EFCC, which made the clarifications in a statement by its Acting Head of Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, said it only act after the investigators have done a thorough job on any individual or firm involved in corruption-related cases.

A major newspaper on Sunday had published a lead story stating that the EFCC would quiz governors Ibikunle Amosun, Rochas Okorocha and  Abdulaziz Yari of Ogun, Imo and Zamfara states respectively when their  tenures end.

According to Orilade, “For the avoidance of doubt, the Commission only act after the investigators have done a thorough job on any individual or firm involved in corruption-related cases.

“The Commission wants to advise our stakeholders, including our friends in the media to be circumspect and verify their stories before going to press.

“Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard the story as no team has been set up against any former governor.”
