The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said that Senate President Bukola Saraki should not be shaken so long as he has no skeletons in his cupboards.
The statement came following the re-opening of Saraki’s investigation.
Naija Buzz had reported how the anti-graft seized his properties located at MacDonald Road Ikoyi, Lagos.
Earlier today, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, the Chairman of EFCC, said that the anti-graft only go for corrupt people.
He stated this when he was asked why the anti-graft was re-opening investigation into a case Saraki had already won at the Supreme Court.
The EFCC boss in his response however stated that the investigation against Saraki was not personal.
“No it is not personal, we are not after anybody. His case is not different from other individuals that are being investigated,” Magu said while speaking with journalists at the EFCC Headquarters in Abuja shortly after receiving an award.
“The EFCC does not pursue people who do not have corruption cases. If you are not corrupt, we do not invite you. If you are not a 419 or internet fraudster, we would never invite you.
“We do our homework very well. Sometimes we conduct our investigations for up to six months, we have been investigating people for more than five years.
“Corruption is a national disaster, every Nigerian should fight corruption, whether you are in Nigeria or outside the country. You remove corruption, you eradicate disaster. All these banditries and Boko Haram, the root is corruption,” he added.
Magu received the Outstanding Leadership in Public Service award from Euro Knowledge Group.
