The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared that it never at any point in time cleared former governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Adamu Muazu of corruption charges.
The commission in a statement by its Head, Media & Publicity, Femi Babafemi yesterday, debunked reports that suggest that the anti-graft agency had concluded investigation on the corruption charges against the former governor and found nothing against him.
It added that it became imperative to issue the clarification because of the persistent enquiries coming from members of the public. While urging the media to always cross check their information through the open communication channel provided by the Commission, it further explained that none of its officials has been mandated under any guise to speak on a case that is yet to be concluded.
“We wish to state emphatically that ex-governor Adamu Muazu is still being investigated and as such could not have been cleared of graft allegations against him.
“The former governor who until recently has been out of the country is still expected to honour an invitation to interview a team of operatives investigating the case against him”, the statement added.
