The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, January 10, has categorically denied it will arraign the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar over alleged N75.3 billion fraud.
Newsflash247 gathered that an online report, Thursday claimed that the Commission will arraign the former Vice President before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Special Offences Court, Ikeja, Lagos.
EFCC acting spokesman, therefore, in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja stated, “EFCC wishes to state categorically that nothing of such took place”.
Orilade added, “The Commission also wishes to state that no statement or press release emanated from the spokesperson of the Commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren to that effect as claimed in the report, nor was there any involvement of any sort from the Commission’s prosecutor, Joy Amahian in the imaginary arraignment.
“The story remains the authors imagination and fake news.
“The Commission, therefore, urges the general public to disregard the fake news as handiwork of mischief makers”.
