EFCC Reacts to News that Declared Matawalle Wanted

Efcc declare Matawalle Wanted
Bello Matawalle
Nigerian anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC) has reacted to a news report that the commission has declared the immediate past Executive Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, wanted.

A trending news reports that the immediate former Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, has been declared wanted by the EFCC. However, the Commission debunked the report saying it has not declared the former Governor wanted.

EFCC established that it has a pending case with Matawalle but debunked the recent news by the Tribune that the commission has declared Matawalle wanted.

EFCC said "The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report, entitled, Alleged N70b Fraud: EFCC Declares Ex-Zamfara Gov, Matawalle Wanted, which appeared in the Sunday Tribune of June 18, 2023 and purports that the Commission had declared a former Zamafara State governor, Bello Matawalle wanted and requested the Department of State Service, DSS, to arrest him, “anywhere he is seen”.

Without prejudice to the case involving the former governor, the report is incorrect as the Commission has yet to declare Matawalle wanted or solicit the assistance of any Agency, including the DSS, to effect his arrest.

The Commission has standard procedure for declaring persons wanted and communicating same to the public, not through faceless “security sources”.
