“Akpabio Still Being Investigated For Fraud” – EFCC

by

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  has said that SenatorGodswill Akpabio, is still being investigated for corruption despite his defection the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Akpabio who is a former Akwa Ibom Governor has been assailed with corruption allegations since he left Akwa Ibom government house for the senate in 2015.

Akpabio entered the EFCC’s books for allegedly looting the sum of N108.1 billion from the coffers of Akwa Ibom during his stint as governor. Akpabio has also been accused of acquiring choice property across the country, namely: Plot 5 Okogosi Spring Close, off Katsina-Ala Crescent, Maitama-Abuja; a multi-billion naira mansionette at Plot 28 Colorado Close, Maitama, Abuja and another multi-billion naira mansion at 22 Probyn Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.

In September of 2017, the EFCC revealed that it was investigating Akpabio over a N1.4billion gift to a bank.

At the grand defection rally last Wednesday, Akpabio said the anti-graft agency has cleared him of all corruption charges but the EFCC has countered this saying:

“EFCC does not close cases or give clearance to anybody.”
