Buhari’s approval, EFCC has been empowered to go after those indicted in the fresh report
Accordly to Punch,the presidential panel set up to probe arms procurement between 2007 and 2015 submitted another report to the President, making it the third report so far submitted to the President by the committee.EFCC had been empowered to go after those indicted in the fresh report.
Accordly to EFCC,“The President has directed that we explore the option of prosecuting indicted persons immediately instead of first publicizing their names thereby giving some of them the headway to escape justice.”
Source revealed that; “The fraud uncovered in this fresh report is massive. All things being equal, the government will be looking at the possibility of making highlights of the report public this week, probably during the Sallah break.”
Member of the House of Representatives during the Second Republic, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, challenged President Buhari to make public the contents of the interim report of the arms probe panel. He alleged that a “cabal” within the Presidency had convinced the President not to make the report public because some of his trusted aides were indicted. Meanwhile, EFCC says it has seized at least 29 properties from ex-Air Force chiefs in the on-going anti-corruption war. While 11 properties were seized from Amosu; 12 were seized from Adigun and six from Gbadebo.
