A statement by the commissions acting spokesman, Mr Tony Orilade in Abuja on Saturday dismissed the allegation as a false alarm is to incite public opinion against the EFCC.

The attention of the EFCC has been drawn to a report in Thisday newspaper of Saturday, February 9 with the headline: EFCC Has Poisoned Tunde Ayeni in Custody, Allege Opposition Parties.

The report according to the author, followed a press release issued on Friday, February 8, in Abuja by the spokesman of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) CUPP, Mr Ikenga Ugochinyere.

Ugochinyere claimed that a credible source revealed to him that Ayeni was currently undergoing treatment in an undisclosed medical facility after he was poisoned in the detention cell of the EFCC.

We found it compelling to state in no unclear terms that Ayeni upon arrest and conveyance to the commission was neither offered food nor drink by our operatives.

There was also nothing consumable: food, drink or water that was brought to him within the brief period he was with his interrogators.

We also wish to state that so far, there has not been any report of any dire health condition on Ayeni and its likely there would not be.

The public may wish to know that the commission in the course of its duties has become conversant with all manners of theatrics from some suspects who would elect not to cooperate.

It is also our desire to inform CUPP that as a commission, we follow due process, and that we are a law-abiding entity and as such, will not keep Ayeni longer than required by law.

We also give our word that he will have his day in court as and when due.

We therefore wish to clarify that Ayeni has allegations of corruption to thrash out with us. It was strictly for this purpose that he became our guest.

It is important at this point that we restate that the commission under the leadership of its Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu is well insulated from going-ons in the political space and that our mandate is well cut out for us by constitution.

By

Unknown gunmen have reportedly murdered Boniface Okloho, the All Progressives Congress chairman in Ohimini LGA of Benue State.

DAILY POST gathered that the late Okoloho was reportedly shot and killed yesterday by some yet-to-be-identified assailants, on his way home from a party function.

Confirming the sad development, the All Progressives Congress Governorship (APC) candidate in Benue State, Hon. Emmanuel Jime, strongly condemned the assassination of Okoloho.

Hon. Jime, who expressed deep sorrow over the gruesome murder of the late party chieftain, sued for peace and brotherliness in the politics of the state, calling on the government of Benue State and security agencies, to fish out the killers of Late Okoloho and bring them to book, to serve as deterrent to others who may want to further the politics of violence.

“I condemn in very strong terms, this unnecessary politics of violence and bloodshed, that has claimed the life of Mr. Okloho, our beloved brother and staunch member of our great party in Ohimini.

“Mr. Okoloho was one of the very committed leaders of our party in Zone C and we regret that he lost his life in such a horrible circumstance, in the service of his state and his party. May his gentle soul rest in peace,” Jime stated in a statement.
