“I won’t Refund Money To EFCC” – Ladoja
Rashidi Ladoja, a former Governor of Oyo State, yesterday said he is not worried by the ongoing suit instituted against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, adding that he would not refund any money to the anti-graft agency because he did not steal while in government.
Ladoja who is accused of misappropriation of state funds while in office between 2003 and 2007. He was taken to court by the EFCC for instructing that N6.6bn worth of shares belonging to the state be sold at discounted rates without the approval of the State Executive Council. Ladoja however said,
“It was true that I did not return any money to the purse of the anti-graft agency because I did not steal state’s money. Why would I refund money when I did not steal any money? I am not bordered. It is true that EFCC said I didn’t refund money. This is because I did not steal any money.
“The man said Ladoja has not refunded any money and he didn’t say the amount Ladoja has stolen that has to be refunded. He said EFCC has recovered money from other people but it has not recovered any money from Ladoja, so why must I be worried? I have not refunded any money as he said. As far as I am concern, there is no case there.”
