The office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has confirmed that a junior member of one of the Election Tribunal panels sitting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State is being investigated.

The EFCC confirmed that its office received a petition showing  video evidence of how a junior member of one of the panels solicited for help for one of the political parties. The video evidence was recovered from the CCTV which serves as a security appliance mounted by the management of a hotel.

An EFCC officer who is privy to the investigation but would not want his name in print, confirmed that the EFCC Chairman has directed some officers to look into the investigation and  report to him.

“I can assure you, we have the video evidence and we are analysing it. We will soon call a press conference and let the whole world see what transpired in the video. The principal suspect has been invited sometime last month but his solicitor just informed us that he may not be able to attend the next questioning because of his  health condition. But no matter what happens, the Commission will do justice to the all the parties involved”, the officer said, on condition of anonymity, since he is not permitted to speak with the press.

‘it’s wicked and stupid! I don’t know how to respond to such’

 

That was a response from one of the aides to the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde when asked to confirm if truly the Governor recently acquired a private jet.

 

A report monitored online by papermache.com alleged that the Governor has joined the league of jet owners in Nigeria.

 

Governor Makinde was said to have been spotted at the Felix Houphouet Airport, Abidjan alighting from the aircraft alongside, Alhaji Azeem Gbolarumi and Alhaji Bisi Olopoeniyan at the just concluded AFCON finals.

Another aide of the Governor who refused to add his name, citing reasons that he wasn’t allowed to make official comments responded to the allegation as ‘funny! How can you say somebody bought a jet because he alighted from it?’.
