“No Corrupt Akwa Ibom Election Petitions Tribunal Member Will Escape Prosecution”- EFCC

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 anonimity, since he is not
permitted to speak with the press.
