Speaking further, the Governor said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was now a department of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He added, “Despite intimidation from the EFCC that has now become a department in APC, we are not going to be intimidated.

“In the last eight months, civil servants who are working with me are being troubled for no just cause. It then means that once you decamp from the APC, EFCC comes after you.”
