👤 EXCLUSIVE: Adenike Lucas, DENISAURUS News
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, led by Ibrahim Mustafa Magu has been accused of being partial in the fight against corruption, following a tweet from the anti-graft agency against Ayodele Fayose.
The “dumb” tweet which reads “parri is over,” pledged to bring an immediate case against the outgoing Governor whose deputy, Olusola Eleka, lost an election to the ruling All Progressives Congress in Ekiti on Saturday.
Mr Eleka has rejected the results of the elections besides, peeved Nigerians said, Mr Fayose is expected to remain in office until October 16, 2018 when he officially hands over to Kayode Fayemi, the APC candidate.
This paper understands that Mr Fayose’s office grants him immunity from public prosecution at the moment, so why did the EFCC hurriedly post such message which has since been deleted.
DENISAURUS News managed to get a screen grab before it was taken down from the Commission’s verified account.
Nigerians showed their anger in their response to the post by The Eagle, a name associated to the anti-graft agency on social media.
They said the EFCC has in the tweet shown it was a partisan agency. It has sided with the ruling party by deciding to launch an attack against Mr Fayose immediately after an election his candidate had lost.
Responding to the tweet, one person said: “Less than 24 hours after Ekiti election, @officialEFCC posted this, isn’t it embarrassing ? Y was it taken down ? Don’t U expect back lash ? Why not wait till he handover ? RU a remote in the hand of subscriber(s) I sincerely count on you.”
“I saw the EFCC “parri over” tweet. Dumb move & good news for Fayose. They have shown their hand to early. My advice 2 him:do not attempt to run, ask Ibori, that will be your undoing. Get very smart & roforofo SANs like Ozekhome, meet them in the jungle. Run & Justice will be swift,” another added.
