Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has told the former Justice Minister and all those invited to go and clear their names with the anti-graft agency instead of trying to drag innocent people into the fray.

Atiku was refuting allegations that he was behind the travails of former Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke (SAN), at the hands of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

'The former Vice President does not have a hand in the travails of the former Attorney General and Minister of Justice,' said Atiku's Media Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe in a statement on Tuesday.

'The Turaki Adamawa advises the erstwhile Attorney General and others so invited to focus on clearing their names instead of dragging innocent people into the fray.'

Adoke had in a letter to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo named Atiku as one of the people behind his travails. Punch
