EFCC is manufacturing fake evidences against me, says Obanikoro Follow @New


The former Minister of State for Defense, Senator Musiliu
Obanikoro has revealed another plot and desperate attempt
by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) to nail him in the ongoing investigation
of arms deal linked to the embattled Office of the National
Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki by making use of
blanked signed letter headed paper found in his 0house to
forge acknowledgement reciepts.
In a statement released on Friday by his Media Aide, Mr
Jonathan Eze, the former Minister expressed
disappointment that the anti graft agency has ignominously
graduated from political persecution into manufacturing
evidences against his person in other to drag his name in
the mud, proving us right that the commision has devolved
into a government appendage for political withchunting.
The statement reads in parts:
” Recall that when the EFCC illegally raided my houses in
Lagos, they went away with various documents which
included a blanked signed letter headed papers as testified
in the Affidavit sworn in the Court.
“It has however came to my notice that the EFCC has
allegedly written an acknowledgement on one of the
document purportedly as evidence that i collected the
equivalent sum of 1million dollars in cash from a Bureau the
Change and signed for it. “This is another lie from the pit of
hell. How can anybody change money from a Bureau De
Change and sign for it ?
“I still insist that throughout my stints as Minister, I never
collected any money from any Bureau De Change and as
such, I urge the public to ignore the EFCC who are trying to
skew up investigations in its favour.
“The EFCC has obviously betrayed public trust by its latest
sinister plan of manufacturing receipt in my name. Instead
of genuinely carrying out it’s mandate, it has been grossly
overshadowed by political wiles.
Last month, Punch newspaper had quoted a detective at the
EFCC saying that :
“The owner of A. A. G. B. S Oil and Gas confirmed to us that
the company is a BDC but was only bearing the name of an
oil company. He confirmed that he received N168m from
Sylvan McNamara and $1m was delivered to Obanikoro in
cash while he was the Minister of State for Defence based
on the exchange rate at the time.
“Obanikoro acknowledged receipt of the cash and we have
recovered evidence.”
