The EFCC has refuted claims circulating in the media about a supposed list of ex-governors currently under investigation for corruption.

Despite reports alleging that 58 former governors from various states of the country were being probed for misappropriating N2.187 trillion over 25 years, the EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, denounced these reports as inaccurate and deceptive in a statement released on Sunday.

He said the “so-called list is a disingenuous fabrication designed to achieve motives known only to the authors.”

“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, feels obliged to dissociate itself from a phantom report circulating in sections of the media claiming it has released a full list of ex- governors being investigated for alleged corruption,” the statement read.

“The report headlined:  “EFCC Releases  Full List of 58 Ex- Governors  that Embezzled N2 .187 Trillion”, in one of the news outlets, is false and mischievous as the Commission neither issued the said list nor entertained discussions on investigation of ex-governors with any news medium.”

The anti-graft agency urged the public to disregard the report, saying “it is false and misleading.”

The EFCC also encouraged media practitioners to verify information regarding ongoing investigations with the Commission to prevent the dissemination of false and inaccurate reports that could mislead the public.
