EFCC Reveals Plan By Corrupt Governors, Other Politicians To Flee Nigeria

Plans by some corrupt governors and other politicians accused of corruption to flee Nigeria ahead of the May 29 handover, have been uncovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This was made known by the spokesperson of the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement he issued on Friday night.

According to Uwujaren, the plan by the corrupt politicians to elope ahead of the handover will be frustrated by the commission in collaboration with its international partners.

EFCC assured the general public that all political actors involved in corruption while in public office must be brought to justice.

The statement reads partly, “Again, the Commission wishes to alert the public about plans by some of the alleged corrupt politically exposed persons to flee the country ahead of May 29.

“The Commission is working in close collaboration with its international partners to frustrate these escape plans and bring those involved to justice.”
