We Have Not Cleared Ex- Gov. Muazu of Corruption Charges â€“ EFCC
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission , EFCC has declared that it has not cleared former governor of Bauchi State , Adamu Muazu of corruption charges. The EFCC in a statement on Monday October 11, 2010 debunked reports that suggest that the anti-graft agency had concluded investigation on the corruption charges against the former governor and found nothing against him.
The anti-graft body said it has to issue the clarification as a response to persistent enquiries coming from members of the press and the general public on its alleged clearance given to Muazu.
'We wish to state emphatically that ex-governor Adamu Muazu is still being investigated and as such could not have been cleared of graft allegations against him.
'The former governor who until recently has been out of the country is still expected to honour an invitation to interview a team of operatives investigating the case against him', the statement added.
While urging the media to always cross check their information through the open communication channel provided by the Commission, it further explained that none of its officials has been mandated under any guise to speak on a case that is yet to be concluded.
