EFCC Did Not Freeze Adelekes’ Accounts, Says Spokesman

Posted on the 17 September 2018 by Naijapary
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied freezing the bank accounts of Sen. Ademola Adeleke and those of his family members, including popular musician, Davido.

Adeleke is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the Sept. 22 governorship election in Osun.

Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement on Sunday, said media publications alleging the account freeze by the EFCC were false.

"The commission calls on members the public to disregard the report, which is patently false and contrived to dress the agency with a partisan garb in the unfolding political contest in Osun State.

"For the avoidance of doubt, at no time did the EFCC place a freeze order on any account belonging to members of the Adeleke family.

"The purported freeze order which has unfortunately been amplified by pliable sections of the media without any attempt at confirmation, is alien to the commission and another example of fake news.

"The EFCC frowns at the seeming attempts by faceless forces to drag it into the political fray," he said.

Uwujaren restated the commission's "neutrality as a law enforcement organisation that is sworn to uphold the law at all times, irrespective whose interest is at stake."
