38 Views Comment Off

The EFCC is investigating a huge number of damning petitions against Nigeria’s immediate past governors and members of their families.

According to senior operatives of the commission, some of the immediate past governors and many of their family members will soon be charged to court on the conclusion of investigation into allegations of stealing, abuse of office, money laundering and other vices, for which EFCC said they have been indicted.

 

“Since we are not the final arbiter on corruption matters, they will all have their days in courts of competent jurisdiction”, a senior official said.

It’s believed that most of the state governors that served out their tenure on May 29, “have a case to answer”

“It has been a floodgate of damning allegations for most of the immediate past governors. We are investigating every matter in details and sieving out frivolous ones. The truth is that many of them stand indicted and will have to be prosecuted for money laundering, stealing and other corruptions charges.

“It is unbelievable that very few can escape if the judiciary doesn’t look at technicalities. You know we don’t adjudicate”, the official added.

Isa Yuguda is said to be an exception because there is currently no petitions written against him.
