A former Commissioner for Special Duties in Enugu State, Ms Rita Mbah, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to transfer the investigation into the disbursements of N450 million campaign funds from its Enugu Zonal Office to its Abuja Head office on allegation of compromised investigation among others.
She alleged that the EFCC, Enugu zone, has not invited the alleged beneficiaries of the funds for questioning. The former commissioner during the administration of ex-Governor Sullivan Chime, in her letter to the EFCC chairman, said prior to her medical trip abroad, she had written to the Commission’s Enugu Zone, detailing the disbursement of the said N450million.
She alleged in the letter through her lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), urged the transfer of the case from Enugu Zonal Office to Abuja for proper investigation.
Ms Mbah had revealed how about N37.4 million was given to INEC officers of out of about N450m from the Presidential Campaign Committee during the build-up to the 2015 general election. She revealed that the then Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), constituted a campaign organization, in which she was made the Secretary and made financial releases.
She expressed her worry that not a single arrest has been made by the EFCC over five weeks after the receipt of the said letter, notwithstanding the revelations made.
