RE: EFCC traces Akwa Ibom’s N1.4b to 11 accounts

The attention of the Akwa Ibom State Government has been drawn to a publication on the Nation Newspaper of August 12,2018 alleging that N1.4b belonging to Akwa Ibom State Government was traced to 11 Accounts by the Economic Financial & Crimes Commission (EFCC).

We wish to state that this a false allegation and a desperate face saving effort by the EFCC to justify the unlawful freezing of accounts of the Akwa Ibom State Government which attracted widespread public condemnation.

The Akwa Ibom State Government has served notices of contempt to the EFCC and would not be dragged into a public discourse on a matter that is patently sub judice.

This matter is before the Federal High Court Uyo.
