Following the siege and the subsequent grill by operatives f the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Deputy Senate President have stated that he is innocent of what he is being accused of.
According to him, he does not own any hidden properties as alleged against him by the EFCC.
NIGERIA NEWS recalls that the EFCC charged the Deputy Senate Leader for money laundering which has kept him in their custody for a while now.
He made this known via a statement by his Special Adviser (Media), Uche Anichukwu, who stated that the allegations were mere lies.
The statement reads, “My attention has been drawn to false reports in some national dailies that the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, developed High Blood Pressure in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, upon alleged presentation to him of a fresh set of purported ‘hidden properties’ supposedly acquired by him. There is no truth to this propaganda.”
“Since the siege would not allow him to honour the belated “invitation” the same day, he, as a law-abiding citizen, wrote to the EFCC to request for another date, hence the rescheduled appointment of Tuesday, July 31, 2019.”
“Senator Ekweremadu honoured the 10am appointment on the fixed date and left in the evening of the same day when he was granted bail on self-recognizance with an understanding that he would report at the EFCC office at 10am the next day for a continuation of the interview.”
“So, there was no interrogation whatsoever on Wednesday, let alone presentation of so-called additional “facts” that purportedly triggered his blood pressure. Likewise, there were no new “facts” presented to him the previous day, Tuesday, July 31, beside those concocted by the dismissed Chief Judge of Enugu State, Innocent Umezulike and his cohorts in their petition.”
“The Office feels compelled by the mischief and orchestrated media trial to put the “facts” straight on this particular issue,” he noted.
