Group uncovers plot to scuttle EFCC investigation on NEMA


AN anti corruption group, the New Initiative for Credible Leadership (NiCReL) has raised the alarm over plots by some indicted directors of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to scuttle the ongoing investigation by the the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). He said, “This plot, being executed by staff loyal to the indicted directors, was written as a petition to the various statutory bodies which investigated the activities of the Maihaja led executive of NEMA as Director General. He said this is inspite of the fact that the House probe became derailed when the indicted directors and ex-NEMA DG started contacting the House of Representatives Members on the panel. “We demand that the House of Representatives allow the EFCC to investigate the matter without undue interference since that is the agency that can prosecute those indicted. It will be against national interest to reduce this grievous theft of national funds into an issue for political investigation that will not go anywhere.”
