EFCC denies list of ex-Governors under investigation for alleged corruption

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied the list of former Governors under investigation for alleged corruption being circulated in the media.

A press statement signed by Dele Oyewale, Head of Media & Publicity, EFCC, on Sunday, 5th May 2024, said the list is not from the Commission.

According to the statement, the EFCC has not released any list of such, thereby advising the public to disregard the fake news.

“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, feels obliged to dissociate itself from a phantom report circulating in sections of the media claiming it has released a full list of ex-governors being investigated for alleged corruption.

“The report headlined: ‘EFCC Releases Full List of 58 Ex-Governors that Embezzled N2.187 Trillion’, in one of the news outlets, is false and mischievous as the Commission neither issued the said list nor entertained discussions on investigation of ex-governors with any news medium.

“This invariably means that the so-called list is a disingenuous fabrication designed to achieve motives known only to the authors.

“The public is enjoined to ignore the report as it is false and misleading.

“The media is advised to endeavour to crosscheck facts pertaining to matters under investigation with the Commission to avoid misleading the public with false and inaccurate reports,” the statement read.
