No Credible Evidence To Prosecute Former SGF, Lawal – EFCC

No Credible Evidence To Prosecute Former SGF, Lawal – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says it is yet to have credible evidence to charge the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Babachir Lawal, to court over his alleged corruption that led to his dismissal.

Spokesperson of the agency, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, gave this hint on Tuesday on Channels TV’s Democracy Day programme.

This comes amid questions about the fate of the former SGF who was fired after being indicted for corruption and investigated for the same.

Critics of President Muhammadu Buhari have argued that the failure to prosecute Mr Lawal and other people close to his administration or in his party, the APC, hurts his much-talked-about anti-corruption war.

During the TV programme, a former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Mr Chidi Odinkalu, brought up the issue, while explaining why he believes the fight against corruption has been discredited.

“If the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has been investigated by the vice president, the national security adviser and the attorney-general of the federation on the basis of which the President has fired him and you are telling me that that is not authoritative enough to send him to court, there is a problem.”

The EFCC spokesperson who confirmed that “the case involving the former secretary to the government of the federation has been investigated by at least two panels before now”, explained that it had not been forgotten.

“The matter is on the table of the EFCC,” he said. “We are currently doing our investigation and at the end of our investigation, if we have credible evidence to take him to court, we will take him to court.”
