The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) weekend denied raising any team of investigators to probe outgoing state chief executives.
The denial followed reports that the commission had set up a team of investigators to probe some outgoing governors.
A statement signed by the commission’s Acting Head of Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, debunked the report.
“The EFCC does not go after anybody, including ex-governors on speculative ground. For the avoidance of doubt, the commission only acts after the investigators have done a thorough job on any individual or firm involved in corruption related cases.
“The commission wants to advise our stakeholders, including our friends in the media to be circumspect and verify their stories before going to press.
“Members of the public are therefore advise to disregard the story as no team has been set up against any former governor”, it said.
