Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has explained why its operatives stormed the ongoing presidential primary elections of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the Moshood Kashimawo Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.
Dozens of operatives were sighted in their red jackets at the venue of the primaries which caused panic.
The Commission has now explained that its operatives were there to monitor delegates inducement and financial malpractices.
Reports had claimed that there was flow of cash in naira and dollars at the venue to lure delegates.
However, the anti-graft agency’s Public Relations Officer, Wilson Uwujaren, who spoke to newsmen on Saturday evening, said, “Our operatives are at the ongoing PDP presidential primary elections at the MKO Abiola Stadium to monitor the exercise, and most especially, to check delegates inducement and other financial malpractices”.
As at press time, no arrest was made by operatives of the EFCC.
Meanwhile, a presidential hopeful, under the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Rochas Okorocha is currently in custody of the anti-graft agency.
