Matawalle is Drowned in Our Swamp, He Can't Escape, EFCC Vows

Efcc news, matawalle news, 2 million dollars bribery allegation
Bello Matawalle and Abdulrasheed Bawa
The Nigerian anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted to a trending news where Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle linked the chairman of the commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa to an attempted 2 million dollars bribery allegation.

The commission however vows to deal with every corrupt Nigerian leader who may be planning to flee the country after their tenure. The commission, in reply to Matawalle's revelation, insisted that the allegations hold no water without evidence from Governor Matawalle.

A statement officially released by the commission reads in parts:

"The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been drawn to a trending interview granted to the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, by Bello Muhammed Matawalle, governor of Zamfara State, where he allegedly made wild bribery allegations against the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa.

"Matawalle's recourse to mudslinging is symptomatic of a drowning man clutching at straws.

"But despite the irritation of his phantom claims, the Commission will not be drawn into a mud fight with a suspect under its investigation for corruption and unconscionable pillage of the resources of his state.

"If Matawalle will be taken seriously, he should go beyond saber-rattling by spilling the beans - provide concrete evidence as proof of his allegations.

"Again, the Commission wishes to alert the public about plans by some of the alleged corrupt politically exposed persons to flee the country ahead of May 29.

"The Commission is working in close collaboration with its international partners to frustrate these escape plans and bring those involved to justice.
