Names of Ex-Governors to Undergo Fresh Corruption Trial

Scandal Rocks EFCC Recruitment Process

Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has sent a letter containing names of ex governors to the ICPC and the EFCC whose corruption cases are to be reopened, Punch reports.

“It is clear that some of these governors and other politically-exposed persons have not been charged to court despite the fact that the ICPC has concluded their investigations, concerning allegations levelled against them, for one reason or the other,” the letter said.

“It is the position of the present administration that all ex-governors, who the ICPC had long concluded investigations into the various allegations levelled against them, should be immediately prosecuted,” it added.

The letter gave the anti-graft agencies 14 days to take action.
