The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seems to be cracking down hard on state governments now as only a day after the anti-graft agency froze the bank accounts of Benue State government, it has done the same in Akwa Ibom, TheCable reports.
The report quoted the source as saying:
“The governor was shocked when he was briefed about the development. He has demanded explanation from the EFCC. Our suspicion is that our big friend who just departed is behind the issue but we will fight this injustice.”
Freezing of the accounts comes on the same day the former governor of the state and current senator representing Akwa Ibom Central Godswill Akpabiodumped the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The EFCC did not respond to queries on the issue and has not released any statement to that effect.
