Sequel to his contribution on the floor of the Senate during the confirmation of the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which was eventually rejected unanimously by the Senate, Senator Dino Melaye has alleged that the EFCC was plotting to cook up allegations against him.
Melaye made the claim via his twitter handle @dino_melaye, where he noted that he had credible information that the commission had already started carrying out forensic investigations on all his bank accounts.
He, however, pointed out that he was ready for the commission’s investigation.
Melaye twitter: “I have credible information that EFCC is trying to cook up allegations against me. Forensic check on all my accounts. I ready for una.”
TheNewsGuru.com recalls that the social media was awashed on Thursday with news that the anti-graft agency planned to arrest 23 senators for questioning, including Senator Melaye.
Other Senators who were said to be on the purportedly interrogation list of the EFCC included President of the Senate Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, Minority Leader Godswill Akpabio, as well as Sen. Stella Oduah.
TheNewsGuru.com reports that the Senate had on Wednesday for the second time rejected the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as the substantive Chairman of the EFCC after a 2-hour screening, citing DSS report against him.
