Protesters Storm EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been asked to reopen its investigations into the former governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.

The Press Nigeria reports that some protesters stormed the commission’s headquarters on Friday and requested the move.

The protesters, under the auspices of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalists Forum, are asking the anti-graft agency to investigate all petitions against the former governor, including the alleged contract diversion of up to ₦70 billion during his tenure as governor of the state.

The EFCC Director of Public Affairs, Wilson Uwujaren, who received the protest letter on behalf of the chairman, promised protesters that the commission is determined to pursue every corruption case to a logical conclusion.

Recall that Matawalle is the incumbent Minister of State for Defence in President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
