The Economic and Financials Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied investigating Ogun state governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
This was revealed in a statement by the commission and made available to NGHUBS on Wednesday.
The statement reads
The attention of the EFCC has been drawn to reports in the social media purporting that the Commission recently stormed the basement of the Ikeja, Lagos residence of Senator Ibikunle Amosun, governor of Ogun State, where cash in local and foreign currencies are said to have been stashed in a vault.
The report quoting ghost sources in the Commission further alleged that the Commission had been on the trail of the governor for two weeks before the purported raid.
It is important to state that there is no truth in the report. Governor Amosun was neither under surveillance nor was any of his residence raided by operatives of the EFCC. Consequently, members of the public are enjoined to disregard the false report.
