The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has issued a warning to the general public about an alleged plot by several governors and other politicians suspected of corruption to depart the nation in advance of the handover on May 29.
In a statement that was released late on Friday, Wilson Uwujaren, a spokesperson for the EFCC, sounded the alarm.
According to the commission’s statement, it is presently working with its international partners to guarantee that the plans are unsuccessful.
The commission has taken an oath to ensure that all political players who have engaged in corrupt behavior while holding public office be brought before the appropriate legal authorities.
The following is an excerpt from the statement: “Once again, the Commission wishes to alert the public about plans by some of the alleged corrupt politically exposed persons to flee the country prior to May 29.”
“The Commission is working closely with its international partners to foil these escape plans and bring those responsible to justice,” the sentence reads.
