Bello Matawalle and Abdulrasheed Bawa
With the claim of having enough evidence to ascertain his claim, Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has accused the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, of demanding a bribe of two million dollars from him.

In an interview with BBC Hausa Service, which was also reported by Leadership, Matawalle alleged that Bawa could not be trusted and that if he leaves office, people will know that he is not an honest person.

It should be recalled that on Wednesday, Matawalle had called for Bawa's resignation, claiming that the EFCC chairman has questions to answer on alleged corruption.

In his response to Matawalle's allegation, Bawa said that if Matawalle had evidence against him, he should bring it before the appropriate authorities, adding that he had nothing to hide.

Matawalle said that the EFCC boss is claiming that he has evidence against Governors, and challenged him to show the world the evidence he has against those at the federal level too.

He said - "It is not just to always blame governors. It is not only governors who have treasury, the federal government also has. What does the EFCC boss do to them? As he is claiming he has evidence on governors, let him show the world evidence of those at the federal level.

"If he exits office, people will surely know he is not an honest man. I have evidence against him. Let him vacate the office, I am telling you within 10 seconds probably more than 200 people will bring evidence of bribes he collected from them. He knows what he requested from me but I declined."

In addition, Governor Matawalle said - "He requested a bribe of $2 million from me and I have evidence of this. He knows the house we met, he invited me and told me the conditions. He told me governors were going to his office but I did not. If I don't have evidence, I won't say this."
