Abati honoured our invitation – EFCC

It was gathered that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says former presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, honoured its invitation on Monday.


This is contrary to media reports that Abati was “arrested and brought’’ to the commission’s office.

“Former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, on Monday, honoured an invitation by the EFCC at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

“He is currently presently telling operatives of the commission his role in the alleged mismanagement of the nation’s resources through his office.

“We shall keep you posted,’’ the anti-graft agency said on its Twitter handle on Tuesday.

Quoting anonymous EFCC sources, some of the media reports said Abati was arrested for allegedly collecting N100 million from former National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Col. Sambo Dasuki.

According to the reports, the money was part of 2.1 billion dollars meant for the purchase of arms for the Nigerian Army to fight Boko Haram insurgents.

Spokesman of the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, is yet to confirm the reports. He did not answer his phone on Tuesday when NAN called to get update on the matter.
