EFCC Takes Instructions From Highest Bidder — Oba Of Benin

Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of taking instructions from the highest bidders.

Gatekeepers News reports that the monarch expressed his dissatisfaction during a meeting with Effa Okim, zonal director of EFCC on Monday in Benin.

Oba Ewuare II told Okim that he was not happy about certain things that happened during previous administrations at the zonal office.

He alledged that EFCC didn’t take his petition on fraud allegedly committed by some former palace officials seriously.

Oba Ewuare II expressed his dismay, stating that despite compelling evidence against the former palace officials, the anti-graft agency set them free.

The monarch said the palace has found it difficult to continue supporting the activities of the agency.

He said “No matter how you try to support EFCC from the palace, when it is time to assist them, they listen to other parties.”

“What I have been told is that they take instructions from the highest bidder.”

“I was not happy with certain things that happened in the time of your predecessors.”

“How can EFCC operatives, especially the lady who handled the case I cited earlier, behave like that?”

“If I was asked to comment on her performance, I would score her zero. I do not know if she was doing an EFCC job or just dancing to the tunes of people who were giving her money.”
